Writing the West-Exquisite Corpse

Aug 23, 2017

AMWA partners with the Lighthouse Writers Workshop in offering monthly writing sessions in the museum galleries!


At Writing the West we write within the gallery space of the American Museum of Western Art. We respond to fun and interesting writing prompts and then read aloud what we wrote next to the paintings that inspired us. AMWA educators give brief “behind the scenes narratives” of chosen paintings and encourage questions.


All are invited, not just writers interested in the western genre, but those feeling the need to continue the conversation of what it means to live in Denver. Also, those of us who don’t identify as writers are welcome to attend.
