Borrowed Scenery: Portland Japanese Garden*

*/Saturday, August 18, 12:00 -- 5:00 pm/
The Garden is an ideal setting for contemplation and observation. We'll 
meet briefly in the back room of a nearby cafe to consider some of the 
basic principles behind the design of the garden and their  
relationships to writing, and then we'll wander the garden paths and 
write. Several exercises will help jump-start the writing process. After 
our visit, we'll return to the cafe and share our results, with time for 
feedback and ideas for furthering what we've begun.

For more information, see the Writing Places page 
<http://www.multnomahartscenter.org/2012/05/08/writing/> on the MAC site.

*To register, call 503-823-2787. *

/The excursion leaders reflect Portland's avant-garde writing community 
and offer unique prose and poetry writing exercises at each place.  It's 
great intellectual stimulation . . . If you want to get a different 
perspective of the metro area, I highly recommend signing up for one or 
more./ -- Artist and writer Paula McNamee
