Pikes Peak Writers is known for our annual conference, but we also do tons of programming throughout the year, much of it free!
One of our free monthly events is Writer’s Night, where writers of all genres gather together to discuss writerly topics over food and drinks. Anyone is welcome to attend, whether they have a question to ask or they just want to hang back and listen.
Why Go to Writers Night?
At the last meeting, I asked the attendees for their top reasons to attend Writer’s Night, and here they are:
- Hearing from other writers inspires you to keep writing.
- It’s nice to be around like-minded people.
- Sense of community. Writing is such an isolated experience–sometimes you need to escape it.
- Helps fight impostor syndrome.
- Exposes you to diverse perspectives.
- Casual education. Learn from others while just hanging out!
- Bragging rights. Each session, we go around the room and allow people the chance to tell us about their accomplishments.
- Gets you out of the house.
- You don’t have to make dinner.
We’ve got exciting news to share, too! Writer’s Night is getting a face-lift. It’s moving to Navajo Hogan in August. Plus, we’ve got a new host! Mytchel Chandler has taken over as Writer’s Night host, bringing a fresh perspective to the group.
