About Write Denver

Lighthouse Writers Workshop created Write Denver with the aim of getting everyone in the city writing. We collaborate with fellow community and arts organizations to bring together people of all ages and backgrounds. We provide simple writing prompts and then let creativity take over.

The words that come out of these writing sessions—short stories, personal essays, poems—are then installed as art pieces throughout Denver. Look up, and you might find a haiku on a street sign. Walk through the park, and you’ll find a story on the sidewalk. Or, you’ll see a grand mural on the site of a business building and you’ll be stopped in your tracks, hooked by the first line of the story or poem.

Write Denver’s writing sessions and installations will give Denver a voice—one that represents the wonderful variety of people and experiences that make up our city, engaged in conversation about what it means to be right here, right now.
