literary arts + lectures


Welcome to the Literary Arts Department! Engage with words, stories, and ideas in new and exciting ways. Explore the craft of writing in workshops; be inspired by life-affirming prose at readings; or network with other writers and readers.

We have moved many of our offerings online! We hope you will join us.

Our literary workshops and classes strive to provide the highest caliber of craft, support, and community for writers and readers in the Gunnison Valley and beyond. We focus on the whole writer, providing an exceptional, inclusive learning experience.

Many thanks to Denise Hawk and Blake Hawk for their generous support of the Literary Arts Department!
