PPW June News & Events

Compiled by Debi Archibald 

We are fast closing in on the halfway mark for 2015. Are you taking advantage of all the programming and events Pikes Peak Writers has to offer to keep you on track for your writing goals this year? Here's what's coming up in June.


Open Critique

Because Open Critique falls on the first Wednesday of each month, it's frequently come and gone by the time News & Events hits the blog. So make sure to put July's O.C. on your calendar:

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Meet up at the Cottonwood Center for the Arts, 427 East Colorado Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO. 
Get the first 8 pages of your manuscript critiqued by a guest critiquer (J. T. Evans in July) as well as the other participants. Donnell Bell will schedule the first 8 that RSVP to pikespeakopencritique@hotmail.com.

June Write Brain 

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 6:30-8:30 p.m.
