Other Events

Other EventsPikes Peak Writers isn’t just a world-class annual conference. PPW is the proud host of events for writers throughout the year.  Find out more about them here, and make plans to attend soon. See you there!

We at Pikes Peak Writers hunger to learn about the craft of writing.  We itch to hear industry news and build our understanding of the business side of our profession.  We ache to get our writing in front of discerning readers for comments, criticism, and hopefully applause.  And because writing can be such a solitary business, we find ourselves longing for the company of other writers because they understand why we stop mid-conversation to pull out a notepad and scribble something down, why we can get lost in a bookstore for hours and hours, and why we sometimes talk to our imaginary friends.  So PPW puts on events all year long where writers can get together with other writers (and readers) for learning, critiquing, socializing and sharing our common bond.

Check out the links on the right to learn more about the kinds of events PPW hosts in the Pikes Peak Region each year.

For you writers NOT in the Pikes Peak region (and for Coloradans who get snowed in on occasion) please check out our mp3 recordings that can be accessed anywhere there’s Internet.

Event Description:
Will your idea support a whole novel?
Original concept by Shaunta Grimes for the Ninja Writers

Here’s what I hear writer’s saying: They want to write a book, but they have so many ideas, they aren’t sure where to start. Here’s a method of developing and testing story ideas that will help.
Remember the 5 Ws and an H that you learned in elementary school? Who, What, Where, Why, When, and How?
These are the basics of discovery, and they’ll work for your story idea, too.
We will cover a five step plan to both develop and test a story idea, so that you never find yourself 1000s of words in, and realize that you’re either telling the wrong story or your idea isn’t big enough to hold up a novel length work.
