Wordcrafters Summer Social Fun(d)raiser and Trivia Contest

Help make the Wordcrafters studio groovy, while enjoying writer games, community, and trivia at Oregon Wine Lab.

Join your fellow writers for a fun-filled afternoon that combines community, creativity, and charity. 

Making the Wordcrafters studio more comfortable and accessible for all writers is crucial, and we need your help to make it happen. Spend a Sunday afternoon at Oregon Wine Lab, enjoying writing games and friendly competition over delicious food and drinks, and raise funds for the studio. We’re the June nonprofit of the month, which means 10 percent of all sales on June 23 go to Wordcrafters!

Build community with fellow writers in a relaxed, low-key environment, while raising funds for Wordcrafters. 

As a writer, you know it’s good to connect with other lovers of word and story, but many literary events can feel too formal or high-pressure. Networking? No way! Even workshops and readings don’t always provide the relaxed atmosphere you’re looking for or an easy way to connect with others. 

Perhaps you need a casual, enjoyable setting where you can socialize and build relationships with fellow writers. Our Summer Social Fun(d)raiser provides just that, with activities designed to foster community and raise funds for Wordcrafters.

Spend an afternoon at Oregon Wine Lab and participate in low-key board games, a writer’s bingo ice-breaker, and a friendly trivia contest. Not only will you have fun and meet new people, but you’ll also be contributing to a good cause by supporting Wordcrafters.

By attending our Summer Social Fun(d)raiser and Trivia Contest, you’ll be directly contributing to making our studio a welcoming space for everyone, while playing (and eating and drinking) the afternoon away.

Support your writing community: Directly help fund accessibility improvements for the Wordcrafters studio. Ten percent of all Oregon Wine Lab’s sales will go to Wordcrafters, plus we’ll have a 50-50 raffle.

Let out your inner word nerd: Enjoy low-key board games, writer’s bingo, and a fun team-based literary trivia contest.

Social connection and interaction: Connect with fellow writers and readers in your community. Catch up with old friends and meet some new ones in a relaxed setting.

Make a meaningful impact: Know that your participation will make a tangible difference in creating an inclusive environment.

Join us on June 23 at Oregon Wine Lab for an afternoon of fun, games, and goodwill. Together, we can create a more accessible and welcoming Wordcrafters studio for everyone!
