Write Brains

Write BrainsWrite Brain Sessions are free mini-workshops on the craft of writing, business of writing, and the writer’s life.  Watch for them in Colorado Springs on the third Tuesday of most months. Pikes Peak Writers began offering monthly Write Brain workshops in 2004.

Always playing to a good-sized crowd that has continued to grow over the years, the Write Brain workshops deal with the craft of writing and also look at the business side. Everything from promotion to understanding your characters to writing action scenes to handling taxes and copyright issues–the Write Brain workshops cover the wide variety of topics writers need to know.

With such wonderful presenters as Mario Acevedo, Lynda Sandoval, Deb Coonts, Todd Fahnestock and many, many more, we’ve explored the genres of romance, mystery, thrillers, urban fantasy, traditional fantasy, science fiction, horror and young adult. We’ve brought in editors, agents and publishers. Police officers and sociology professors. Lawyers and best-selling authors. We’ve discussed poetry with our local poet laureate and analyzed best-selling novels with those in the know.

The Write Brains are a dynamic part of PPW’s interaction with the writing community, both in Colorado and beyond. We hope you’ll join us!

Please be aware that all events held at the Pikes Peak Library District locations are subject to the PPLD policies. Attendees and PPW staff/faculty are expected to adhere to these policies at all times.
