The Sixth Annual TEXT BALL
The TEXT BALL is Portland's unique celebration of all things text, where attendees are encouraged to come dressed with text as part of their evening attire. The theme for this year's ball is "In Poetic Fashion," and we're pleased to host indie-folk heroine Laura Gibson as our musical guest. Along with live music and poetry readings, attendees can enjoy word games like Scrabble, giant crossword puzzles, a dirty limerick challenge, and a silent auction. The evening will culminate in a costume parade with literary prizes for best outfits.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

Note that costumes are encouraged but definitely not required.

All proceeds from the TEXT BALL benefit the IPRC's mission to facilitate creative expression, identity, and community by providing access to self-publishing tools and resources.
