Our Vision

Portarlington Neighbourhood House is a welcoming light in an ever-changing environment.


'The Portal' is the initiative of the Thursday Night WritersGroup which meets on a monthly basis to read and critique each otherswork.  It was decided that rather than stories and poems remain neglected and unread the works would be published in a magazine form and The Portal was born.


The Portal appears when there is sufficient material to create a magazine issue.  All past editions are listed and we hope to encourage YOU to read, enjoy and perhaps join our writing group.
