Writing workshop set at Periscope

Creative types take note. Writer Robbie Pock, who earned an MFA from Pacific University and is now an instructor at her alma mater and at Portland Community College, will lead a new writer’s workshop at Periscope Books & Tutoring. The group will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Fridays, starting April 4 for eight weeks. The workshop will focus on short-form — poetry, short stories and non-fiction vignettes — and can be for those just starting a project or who are in the middle of one. Pock has been writing for 13 years and has been published in numerous publications. The registration fee is $80.
