Denver Veterans Writing Workshop

These workshops are always free and open to the public.

In September, the workshops will move to the Denver Public Library's main branch, 10 West 14th Avenue Parkway, in the Gates Conference Center on the 5th floor.  Many thanks to the library for their support, and a huge thank you to Lighthouse Writers Workshop for donating their beautiful space for workshops in the past.

These workshops for veterans are part of the Denver Veterans War Stories program. At the completion of the workshop cycle, veterans writers will be invited to submit work for publication in an anthology.  In fall 2018, writers will participate in a series of readings and community conversations around the Denver metro area.

To sign up for the writing workshops, visit https://coloradohumanities.submittable.com/submit/89122/denver-veterans-war-stories or just come to the library each meeting date.  Workshops will be held one Sunday each month.  Workshops begin at 2:30 p.m. and wrap up around 4:30 p.m..

The Denver Veterans Writing Workshop (DVWW) will fill a void in our community: stories of our military personnel, their families, loved ones, and friends. The DVWW will be a safe space for people to share and workshop prose, poetry, and hybrid texts.

The DVWW aims to create more writers. And not just writers who craft stories, but writers who can construct a curriculum and instruct, who read in public and work on larger projects. The goal of the DVWW is to help people create a skill set that is applicable beyond the classroom. We intend to find new ways to interpret and process oneself and the world through writing, reading, and community.
