DiverseCity Writing Series

Join our community writing program which offers multiple, on-going writing groups throughout the Salt Lake metropolitan area. No matter your experience or interests, the DiverseCity Writing Series (DWS) provides an inviting setting to write. Find inspiration through feedback and writing prompts. Biannually, submit work to sine cera, the DWS anthology, and participate in a public reading. Choose from open-interest or specialized writing groups which meet at locations throughout the city. Whether a beginner or an experienced writer, you’ll find a place in the DiverseCity Writing Series.

DWS writing groups are supported by volunteer mentors and meet twice a month throughout the year. Within these groups, participants share and discuss their writing and generate new writing ideas. Some groups are open to the public, while others are associated with local organizations.

If you are interested in starting a DWS group at your organization, call the Community Writing Center at (801) 957-2192 to speak with the DiverseCity Writing Series coordinator.
