We Heart Wordstock: W+K 12 and W+K Tomorrow Get Involved

Wordstock—Portland’s annual literary festival—is back, featuring seven author stages, a book fair, a children’s activity area, and workshops for emerging writers. W+K loves to read (we have our very own inner-office lending library to prove it) and you can catch us in the mix of festivities throughout the weekend.

For 5th consecutive year, W+K 12 has been tasked by the good people at Wordstock to help give the festival a new look and feel. This year, the 12ers decided to make reading a little sexier; spinning the Wordstock website into an eclectic destination for storytellers and story lovers alike.

Complete with lacquer finishes and illuminating neon colors, the site contains bookishly spicy items like flirty lit buttons and a feisty teaser. Festival-goers can also enjoy a new, adults only Red-Chair District as well as experience literary ecstasy on the WordStock Hotline where participating authors “talk wordy” to you on the other end.
