About your host

After hosting over 1,000 guests as a Superhost, I have decided to combine my love of welcoming people into my home with my love for writing and have created the Portland Writer's House. You and other amazing writers will take advantage of our light editing/proofreading, a wonderful lunch as well as tea time to fuel your way to setting a one day personal word count record! PS: We will have cake!

Where you'll be

You will be writing in our historic home built in 1890. Inside, you can use the soft chairs and couches in the living room, the work table in front of the gas fireplace or the dining room table and watch our chickens roam the yard. Outside, you can sit on the side porch, the patio or the front porch and watch the people walk by. We have an outside smoking area.
