The event is free and open to the public.
For ten years, writers from around Forest Grove and Washington County have submitted and read their work to dozens. Last year we had nearly a hundred attendees. This free event is held in a beautiful winery in the foothills near Hagg Lake overlooking the Tualitin Valley. Enjoy some wine from Plum Hill Winery, our fabulous hosts, and afterwards have a picnic with views of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams from the covered picnic area.
Come laugh, cry, and sigh as you listen to our marvelous readers sharing their creative writing and storytelling skills at this fun family event at Plum Hill Winery.
