First Draft Writers’ Series
Every Third Thursday - Always FREE
The First Draft Writers’ Series brings authors and poets of note to the Pendleton stage to share new work. On the third Thursday of each month people who love the written word gather at the PCA’s Pearson Auditorium to hear our featured authors as well as three to five minute open mic readings by local emerging writers.
You can hear recordings of past events at the East Oregonian’s website.
The event is free to the public thanks to generous support from Oregon Cultural Trust and the Kinsman Foundation as well as from local sponsors and regional foundations. Our founding sponsors include Jan and Tom Groat, Delores and Steve Bjerke, and Barbara and Dale Brandt.
Audience members at First Draft love being immersed in the written word. Hearing those words straight from the author’s lips is often a soul-satisfying experience
Sit back and just listen or bring your own 3-5 minute piece to share during Open Mic.
