Our practice is derived from Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg ... writing spontaneously in the flow.

The CC Writers Exchange
sponsors half- or full-day workshops
Learn and Grow!



Stretching our writing experience! The most popular activities for the Writers Exchange are our high-quality, affordable workshops. These half- or full-day sessions are open to members and non-members alike, although attendance may be limited.


During these workshops, writers will share in the experience of short, fun, insightful writing exercises, discussion and review, reading workshop writing to one another (optional), inspiration from many directions, and lots of encouragement.

CCWE Members always receive advance notice and a discount on workshops. Members may also be eligible for scholarships.



CCWE sponsored workshops occur two times each year usually on a Saturday. During the pandemic we are on Zoom. If we are able to hold in-person workshops locations are varied. We alternate in central Colorado between Salida, Buena Vista, and Leadville, using other locations on special occasions. Get free email alerts! by subscribing on the Home Page of this website. Better yet, join this cozy group of writers to lock in a discount for the workshops! And first come, first served with the events that are "limited" in numbers.

Laurel guided participants through every aspect of creating a publishable novel/novella—from the initial generation of a fertile idea to the nitty-gritty details of populating the metadata.]


Paper and pencil or laptop while we are meeting on Zoom. In classroom workshops we invite attendees to bring snacks for morning break. CCWE furnishes the drinks.

FEES: $20 for CCWE Members, $40 for Non-Members for half day workshops on Zoom. In-person classroom workshops are $40 for members and $65 for non-members.



Seating is limited  and we ask that attendees RSVP for the workshop.
