Author-in-Residence Program

The University Club of Portland’s Author-in-Residence program was established in 2004. It began due to the success of the Club’s annual Authors’ Night which has brought local authors to speak and socialize with Members for the last twenty years. The Author-in-Residence program enriches the membership experience and allows local authors to reach out to new audiences.

Each year one Board-approved local Author establishes a residency at the Club. They are offered one year of dues free Membership and have the opportunity to create programming for our Members.

If you are interested in a residency, please contact our Communications Coordinator, Alex Mitchell at or 503 223 6237.

Those interested must provide a resume and bio. The Library Committee will then pass along a recommendation to the Board of Directors for approval.
