Another Top Ten List for Portland

November 18th, 2011

The National Geographic recently recognized Portland, Oregon among the top ten most literary cities in the world!

Read that again. That’s not just the Pacific Northwest, the US, or English-speaking western countries. The World.

Which means:  not only do we Portlanders read a lot, but we write a lot, too. And we’re supportive of our local writers.

We’re thankful to be part of a community that values literary arts and education, and is home to nationally-renowned institutions like Powell’s, the Willamette Writers Group (largest writers association in the Pacific Northwest), the Wordstock Festival of Books, JAW, and the Fertile Ground Festival of New Works.

Keep reading and writing, folks!
