[quote author=”Peoples Ink” position=”Friend of 9 Bridges”] 9 Bridges is worth checking out, especially for those who want to workshop in a read-out-loud / active listening format.”[/quote]
Last month, 9 Bridges was able to make a new connection in Portland, Oregon. While at the Willamette Writers open house, we met Richard Pope, founder of People’s Ink, a local writers community, After a great discussion about the similarities and differences in our two groups, we all came to the conclusion that our organizations compliment each other very well.
About People’s Ink:
The People’s Ink is an open, free and independent writers’ community open to writers committed to their craft, 21 and over. They meet each week for critique and discussion groups. They are a self-publishing cooperative that promotes local readings, and have a community zine – Typehouse – which showcases the writing of regional and national authors. Members may participate however they wish.

Willamette Writers is the largest dues-based writers’ group in Oregon, with chapters across much of western Oregon. We were fortunate to be invited to attend their open house and be featured on their website.
