Lighthouse Writers Workshop has temporarily gone online.
The Denver literary nonprofit is turning its annual Lit Fest into a virtual experience and expanding the offerings from two weeks to more than a month. The festival now runs from June 1 to July 3.
"We’re still welcoming a world-class lineup of poets, novelists, memoirists, TV/playwrights, and nonfiction writers to teach workshops and seminars," the nonprofit explains on its website. "We’re still hosting readings, agent consultations, digital porch parties and more, but instead of a two-week celebration, we’re expanding virtual Lit Fest to a full month in June."
