    Are you a writer looking to connect with your tribe? Wolverine Farm Letterpress & Publick House and Northern Colorado Writers have joined forces to help bring writers together to provide them with support and resources for a successful writing life. Open your notebooks and your computer files and use this time to write your next chapter, your new poem, or send out work to magazines or publishers. Guest speakers will also be brought in on occasion to share their expertise and advice. Join us every second Sunday from 1:30-4:00 to guzzle a beer, sip wine or coffee, and even share your work with fellow tribe members.

    • Loveland Museum, 503 N. Lincoln Ave., Loveland, CO 80537

    What does it mean to stand “On Winter’s Margin?” asks Mary Oliver in her poem by that name. 

    Whatever your margins are, be they physical, metaphorical, or even spiritual, the winter Solstice takes us to the margins where darkness turns toward light. Join the Regional Poets for a celebration of the winter solstice and all things winter. Included will be a thirty-minute open microphone for which you’re welcome to bring a two-minute poem or song that references this season. A 90-minute program of readers will follow. 

    Refreshments provided. Appropriate for all ages.

    • The Forge Publick House, 255 Old Firehouse Alley, Fort Collins, CO 80524

    Join us on the second Wednesday of each month at The Forge Publick House to enjoy three-minute stories read by the author. Sign-up begins at 6:30pm and readings begin at 7:00pm. Old Firehouse Books is proud to partner with The Forge to make this event possible.

    DimeStories are three-minute stories (prose, not poetry) read by the author. They're funny, they're heart-wrenching. Fictional or factual, they're always true.

    Founded by novelist Amy Wallen, DimeStories is managed by Jennifer Simpson, a writer living in Albuquerque. Jennifer and the entire dime-sized staff run on 100% volunteer power.

    DimeStories events take place every second Wednesday at The Forge. We hope to see you at the event!
