Fir Acres Workshop

Why Portland?


Lewis & Clark is only 10 minutes from the excitement of the urban core of progressive Portland. Fir Acres Writers’ Workshop participants travel to some of Portland’s best attractions for inspiration and for fun, too. Participants visit downtown Portland’s famed Powell’s City of Books, and spectacular natural sites such as Multnomah Falls and Portland Women’s Forum State Scenic Viewpoint in the Columbia Gorge. 

Lewis & Clark College is an ideal setting for the Fir Acres Writers’ Workshop. Lewis & Clark is a private college with a public conscience and international reach. Our alumni, faculty, and students are recognized as global thinkers and leaders. Lewis & Clark is committed to exploring new ways of knowing and developing innovative collaborations.

Lewis & Clark is located on a beautiful 137-acre campus in suburban Portland, Oregon. Enjoy the sunshine on the grassy hills and wooded paths around the historic mansion of our Fir Acres Estate, located at the heart of campus. Write in your journal while nestled against a giant fir tree. Or perch on the steps near the reflection pool in the Estate gardens and catch the view of Mt. Hood.
