8th Annual Text Ball
Brought to you by the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC), in conjunction with Wordstock, the TEXT BALL is Portland's most unique literary event, where attendees are encouraged to come dressed with text as part of their evening attire.  The IPRC recently moved to a huge and amazing new space, and just completed major renovations, making it possible for the TEXT BALL to be held inside the IPRC for the first time ever. The theme for this year's Ball is "Literary Devices." Hosted by the dynamic A.C. Dickson, this year's BALL will include a live auction, costume contest, a dirty limerick challenge, giant crossword puzzles, a wheel of fortune spin for artists' prints, and a DIY station where attendees can make their own commemorative letterpress poster. Special Snowflake Supperclub will provide a delectable spread, with beer by Ninkasi and wine from Portland Wine Storage.

TEXT BALL tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. To buy tickets or view photos from last year's ball, visit 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 publishing tools and resources.
