OnDenver Spotlight on Denver Writes

I was recently contacted by Libby from OnDenver, and she wanted to include Denver Writes in their weekly non-profit spotlight! I was nervous and uncomfortable at first, but after a while I really got into the interview and gave a good amount (maybe too much) of information. It is a little weird/surreal to watch/listen to myself — the only other interviews I’ve done for Denver Writes have been radio only — but I really like how this turned out, it does a great job spotlighting what we do and shines a great light on our wonderful partner BookBar!

More updates are on the way, stay tuned!

Denver Writes Interviews Local Musicians


Because of all the fun we had in interviewing musicians for this year’s Denver Day of Rock, we were asked by Listen Up Denver! to do another round of interviews, this time for Colorado bands who will be competing for their chance to play alongside ZZ Top, Taj Mahal, Gregg Allman and more at September’s Telluride Blues and Brews Festival.

Check out the interviews our very own Denver Writes writers conducted below!
