The New Soapstone: Celebrating Women Writers

We are pleased to announce that we are now offering two new opportunities for readers and writers in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Small Grants to an Individual Woman or an Ad Hoc Group of Women

These funds are to support events and study groups celebrating the work of women writers. General information for both kinds of grants.

The application process is simple and the time between applying and notification short. For the first year, Soapstone board members will serve as the grant review committee.

All events and study groups are open to the public. Events are free of charge; for study groups there is a small fee, with scholarships available.

Soapstone will continue to provide bi-weekly email announcements for writers in Oregon and Southwest Washington, as we have done for many years.


Join us for our Second Annual International Women's Day Poetry Reading, Sunday, March 6, Concordia University, Portland.
