    The Loveland Poet Laureate program will present a reading by Poet Laureate Veronica Patterson, on Thursday, November 14, at 7:00 p.m. at the Loveland Museum, 503 N. Lincoln Ave, Loveland, CO 80537. 

    Titled "To Tell a Story &..." this event is a combination of Veronica's poetry -- both familiar and new work -- and the launch of fundraising to inaugurate a Laureate program's poetry contest with prizes for high-school-aged poets. Let's support our young and fledgling poets with your donations.

    In addition, there will be typewriters (yes, the kind with ribbons and keys that move!) available for you to enjoy typing up your words or the words of your favorite poems. Come early - 6:30 - for some old-fashioned fun. The reading starts at 7:00 p.m.

    The event is free and all are welcome.  Light refreshments provided.

    Margaret Mizushima is the author of the critically acclaimed Timber Creek K-9 mysteries. Her first novel, Killing Trail, was named Debut Mystery of the Month by Library Journal and was an RT Reviewers' Choice Award nominee. She balances writing with assisting her husband with their veterinary clinic and Angus cattle herd. They live on a small ranch in Colorado where they raised two daughters and a multitude of animals. This is her fifth mystery.

    Come celebrate the release of the newest Timber Creek K-9 book and meet Margaret! There will be cake!

    • Artworks Loveland, 310 N. Railroad St.


    NOVEMBER 16 | 1PM-3PM | $20

    When one art describes and/or responds to another, each can ignite further understanding of and delight in the other. In this workshop, we will look at a few ekphrastic poems, and then write twice in response to pieces of art. You can choose from a list of "approaches" to respond in poetry to visual art in ArtWorks exhibits or in one of many books about art.

Wolverine Farm Letterpress & Publick House and Northern Colorado Writers have joined forces to help bring writers together to provide them with support and resources for a successful writing life. Open your notebooks and your computer files and use this time to write your next chapter, your new poem, or send out work to magazines or publishers. Guest speakers will also be brought in on occasion to share their expertise and advice. Join us every second Sunday from 1:30-4:00 to guzzle a beer, sip wine or coffee, and even share your work with fellow tribe members.

    Join us on the second Wednesday of each month at The Forge Publick House to enjoy three-minute stories read by the author. Sign-up begins at 6:30pm and readings begin at 7:00pm. Old Firehouse Books is proud to partner with The Forge to make this event possible.

    DimeStories are three-minute stories (prose, not poetry) read by the author. They're funny, they're heart-wrenching. Fictional or factual, they're always true.

    Founded by novelist Amy Wallen, DimeStories is managed by Jennifer Simpson, a writer living in Albuquerque. Jennifer and the entire dime-sized staff run on 100% volunteer power.

    DimeStories events take place every second Wednesday at The Forge. We hope to see you at the event!
