4th 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 "A Novel Idea."  Along with live music, dancing and text-based refreshments, attendees can enjoy word games like scrabble, giant crossword puzzles, and "Speech-e-oke." The evening will culminate in a costume parade, with literary prizes for the best outfits. Anyone who attends Wordstock can purchase a discounted ticket for only $8.  Otherwise, tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

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. For more information call us at 503.827.0249.
