Paid Events

Pikes Peak Writers hosts a few paid events throughout the year. While most of our non-conference offerings are free, we do have special programming that costs us a little extra to host. Even though these classes aren’t free, we do our best to ensure they are well worth your time and hard-earned money.

Write Your Heart Out

This FREE half-day workshop is a preview of the upcoming Pikes Peak Writers Conference. Six speakers from the conference faculty will give you a peek at what’s to come.

Writing is Art

The Writing is Art competitive writing event begins October 1st and runs though December 31st, 2017.

This inaugural event partners Pikes Peak Writers with the Cottonwood Center for the Arts in an effort to show how art can inspire art.

Writing is Art is a short form event where writers of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, plays, or screenplays are invited to visit Cottonwood Center for the Arts, find an inspiring piece of visual art, and write whatever that artwork inspires.

Writers are asked to create a piece no longer than four typed pages (12-point font, double spaced, one-inch margins). Submit that finished work to WritingisArt@pikespeakwriters.com. Submissions are blind judged by a panel of six experienced authors. Final selections will then be framed and displayed at Cottonwood for the month of March 2018 accompanied by the visual art that inspired the writing.

Follow this link for details on how to submit and the Official Rules.
