Writing The West @Amwa says
At "Writing the West" we write within the gallery space of the beautiful Navarre Building, built in 1880, now home to the American Museum of Western Art. We respond to fun and interesting writing prompts and then read aloud what we wrote next to the paintings that inspired us. AMWA educators then give brief "behind the scenes narratives" of these chosen paintings and encourage questions of all sorts.

All are invited, not just writers interested in the western genre, but those feeling the need to continue the conversation of what it means to live in Denver. Also, those of us who don't identify as writers are also welcome to attend. Everyone who joins us and puts pen to paper has the option to submit a piece of writing to Lighthouse's place-making project Write Denver. If you do that then you'll be part of the Write Denver event taking place on July 20 at AMWA where we'll read our pieces in front of a larger audience as well as install those writings inside the museum for many months to come. Join us and add your voice to this growing collaboration!

Tickets are $5, and attendance is capped. Be sure and reserve your spot today.
