Valentine Reading for Local Writers

Portland writers: do you write from the heart or is your style cold-blooded? Does Valentine’s Day draw out stories of desire and doves, evoke infatuation and yearning, or hit you with a crushing shot straight through the heart? How do you feel about Valentine’s Day, or what does February 14th mean to you?

Portland Public Library is seeking short nonfiction essay and story submissions for a Valentine’s Day-themed reading, and we want to hear from you!

Interested writers may email their pieces to before Friday, February 1st. Only one entry per person will be selected to be read. Please keep the word count to 1,500 or less. Selected writers will be notified before the event and must be present on the 7th to read their own pieces.

Anyone with a heart, be it lonely or full, is affectionately invited to attend the reading on February 7th from 6-7pm in meeting room 3 at our Main Branch. We hope to see you there!
