Claim Your Story’s mission is to support and inspire Northwest writers at all stages in their careers and to re-enforce the importance of story. In fact, we believe that stories can change the world. This mission is accomplished by offering mini conferences so writers can accelerate and deepen their skills in a rapidly-evolving publishing landscape. Claim Your Story offers opportunities to meet and network with fellow writers. It also helps writers to re-prioritize their passion, practice craft like our lives depends on it, and write ourselves alive.
