Workshops & Activities

The 2017 Silver Jubilee Conference is almost here!

At Pikes Peak Writers Conference, our goal is to provide you with programming full of exciting and informative workshops for all skill levels and interests. Authors, agents, editors, publishers, and specialists come to our conference for one reason…to share their knowledge and love for writing with our passionate and ambitious attendees.

Please remember that some things are beyond our control, so all programming is subject to change at any time.
