Columbia Center for the Arts offers innovative programs in the literary arts ranging from Writing Up the Gorge to the summertime Writers In Residence program to storytelling workshops to readings with local authors.
1000 Words: Visual Artists’ Responses to Literary Works
If you’re a writer, author, poet, storyteller, journalist, or dream of making it big in the literary world, you should check out our October 2017 Gallery Exhibition, 1000 Words. We welcome visual artists of all mediums to provide their creative responses to literary works and encourage you to consider partnering with your favorite creative soul! We are also celebrating the written word the entire weekend of October 20-22 with the first ever Hood River Word’s Fair.
Hood River StorySlam
Join us for Hood River’s first ever StorySlam! Experience an evening of short personal narratives told with flair and passion. Be brave and put your name in the hat for a chance to tell your own personal story on stage. We will draw up to 10 names from the hat and have local judges casting their votes.
