2020 Terroir Creative Writing Festival
Postponed until late this year
The Terroir Creative Writing Festival is a program of the Arts Alliance of Yamhill County. The festival is planned and produced by a small group of volunteers who care about good writing, whether they are writers themselves or avid readers. The festival celebrates the writers and writing of our region--from the very local (McMinnville, Oregon) to the state of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. The name "Terroir" refers to the French winemaking term for the characteristics of a place that distinguish it from other places and imbue the wine with particular flavors. We think that the terroir of our area affects creative writers and what they produce, as well.
