Everyone is a Writer!

Have you ever wanted to put your life experiences on paper? Do you have a book already in the works and want to self publish? Are you interested in reading poetry from others and responding to the written word? March is filled with opportunities to engage in all of these writing pursuits! 

Come down to the Eugene Field Branch for Flash Memoir Writing by Theme, on March 28! Write a short scene from your life prompted by a theme (March’s theme is Ancestors). Share what you’ve written or just engage in the discussion that follows. This is an ongoing quarterly program that explores memoir writing in the short form. 

Write Nights - On the Same Page United at Ross-Cherry Creek on March 7. Words Beyond Bars is providing a unique opportunity for participants to read and respond to the poetry of people who are incarcerated. The pages, filled with comments and encouragement in colorful ink, are mailed to the writers. 

Self Publishing 101 at the Park Hill Branch on March 21. This is the year that you’re finally going to publish your book. Get answers to your questions and learn the basic steps of self-publishing. 

Hard Times Writing Workshop with Lighthouse Writers Workshop at the Central Library, March 6, 13, 27.
Poverty, addiction, homelessness and other hard situations shape who we are and the stories we tell. Learn to put those experiences into words. Sharing is optional, and a seasoned instructor will guide you through prompts and edits. 

Celebrate World Poetry at the Central Library on March 20. Join Hard Times Writing Workshop and Lighthouse Writers Workshop for readings from their chapbook.  

Writing heals, expresses, beautifies and records our world and our experience of it! Engage with the written word at the Denver Public Library and make your life the richer for it. Look under Author Visits and Writing in the March Engage Brochure for further details.

Here are some books about memoirs and poetry!
