How to Register

write-on-november-is-national-novel-writing-month-a5349cc216The heart of Denver Writes’ programming has always been weekend workshops where students come together to write around a central theme with a community of writers. Each workshop combines creativity with education and community building.

Workshops are taught by volunteers in our writing community who have a wealth of unique ideas and creativity to share with the remarkable young writers who attend! Each year, we offer a wide variety of topics and are always looking to the kids to give us their ideas on what interests them!

Workshops are for students ages 8-15. Workshops fill up quickly, so be sure to sign up in advance as space is limited!

All workshops are at BookBar (4280 Tennyson Street, Denver CO, 8012) from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, unless otherwise noted.


To register, find a workshop (List of Workshops) that interests you and click the ‘Sign Up Here’ link where you will be directed to fill out an online form. Be sure to follow the prompts all the way through to where you are asked to ‘Submit’ to be certain your registration is completed. You will receive an email confirmation from Denver Writes within 72 hours notifying you that your registration is confirmed.

Please note that in order for us to offer the best possible experience for all writers, we will not be able to accommodate participants who show up the day of the workshop without having registered online or spoken to Denver Writes prior to the date of the workshop.


We no longer require workshop deposits. Denver Writes operates due to donations from our patrons, so we’d gratefully accept donations.

  • We suggest a $25 donation that may be paid through PayPal (follow prompts on registration form) or by check.
  • Please keep in mind that our main priority is having a place for students to write, and we do not want any financial barriers preventing students from attending. The donations are suggested.
  • If paying by check, the check may be mailed to Denver Writes

Denver Writes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. All donations are tax-deductible.

Once a workshop is full, it will no longer be open to registration. You may, however, email Denver Writes at to be placed on a waitlist as cancellations do happen! We will let you know what number you are on the waitlist when you email and will then only contact you prior to the workshop if a spot opens up.


We want to be sure our workshops benefit as many participants as possible, so please take the time to read through our cancellation policy below.

If you need to cancel for any reason, please notify Denver Writes at least 72 hours prior to the start of the workshop so that we are able to accommodate anyone on our waitlist. If canceling less than 72 hours before the workshop, the deposit will be donated.

Of course, emergencies do happen and will certainly take that into consideration!

On rare occasions, Denver Writes will need to cancel a workshop. In these cases you will receive a full refund or the opportunity to sign up for a future workshop.
