Welcome to Denver Writes

What’s better than knowing we’ve got amazing young minds writing their hearts out? Getting to read it, of course! Here, we feature the work of our writers across many different genres. Be sure to check back often as we will be adding new pieces of work with each of our workshops. By the end of this year, we’re hoping to have a published anthology of stories to share with all of you. More to come!

Everyday Magic (April 11th, 2015)

IMG_1821During this workshop, our writers learned to differentiate between fantasy, science fiction, and fairy tales as they crafted their very own tales of magic filled with secret portals, talking hedgehogs and even mermen.

Be prepared to be whisked away into another world as you read their collection of stories HERE!

Check out the advice our writers give to their readers about everything from places to go on vacation to what to do when it’s raining to who, between Batman and Superman, is the better superhero!

Creating Colorful Characters (June 13, 2015)

023When asked what makes a story memorable, this group was unanimous. The characters, of course!

And so, local author Chris Howard challenged the group to write the most descriptive character they could that would be headed for outer space aboard a ship blasting off in the very near future. Check out the humans, animals, and even worms that we came up with HERE!
