About us

Literary Arts is a community-based nonprofit literary center located in downtown Portland, with a 29-year history of serving Oregon's readers and writers. Our programs include Portland Arts & Lectures, one of the country's largest lecture series; Oregon Book Awards & Fellowships, which celebrates Oregon's writers and independent publishers; and Writers in the Schools, which hires professional writers to teach semester-long creative writing workshops in Portland's public high schools. We also host guided discussion groups around great works of literature through a program called Delve.

Our mission is to engage readers, support writers, and inspire the next generation with great literature.
