What is VoiceCatcher?
VoiceCatcher is a nonprofit community that connects, inspires and empowers women writers and artists in the greater Portland, OR/Vancouver, WA. area.
To achieve our vision in 2015, the VoiceCatcher volunteer board and community members will be:
- Engaging more creative women to staff our leadership, editorial and social media needs.
- Sponsoring events — such as readings and art exhibits — to celebrate the contributors to all issues of VoiceCatcher’s journal over the last ten years.
- Celebrating our community at a 10th anniversary celebration.
- Supporting the VoiceCatcher community by publishing articles through the community website on topics such as tips and how-tos on the writing craft, or personal essays on the writing or artistic life.
- Engaging some of the finest teachers in the area to present a series of fundraising workshops on the art and craft of writing and visual art.
- Continuing to work with Wayne Potter and his internet radio program “Keeping Kurrent” to record and broadcast interviews with our authors.
- Expanding social media outreach to grow the VoiceCatcher community and attract the future generations of women writers and artists.
- Pursuing the recording of our journal contributors’ work.
- Strengthening collaboration with other literary and arts organizations to join forces in promoting the voices of women.
VoiceCatcher started as, and remains, an all-volunteer organization. That means its vision only becomes reality when women who share the dream step up to help. If you feel called to join the current community of VoiceCatcher leaders and volunteers in any capacity, please let us know. We’ve only just begun to find new creative ways to further the pioneering work of VoiceCatcher’s founders. We thank them for their vision and hope you will find ways to lend your voice to ours.
