Our mission is to support the writing community of Astoria and the Lower Columbia, while fostering the unique literary arts in our region.




We are a guild of working writers who:

  • Love our craft and strive for excellence

  • Honor the past and build collaborations for the future

  • Approach our work with joy, courage, compassion, and empathy

  • Strive to help create a vibrant, inclusive arts community where kindred souls connect and dreams can happen

  • Reflect a river community, an estuary of people, writing and ideas

  • Connect readers and writers of all ages




We envision a thriving network of writers, helping and supporting each other. A place where diverse people can learn and feel inspired by the wonder of words. Where they can feel seen and find opportunities to do the work they love and be celebrated for it.
