The Writer's Studio

Throughout the year, Lighthouse brings acclaimed and up-and-coming writers to Denver for craft sessions, on-stage conversations, readings, Q&As, and other events. Books by the authors are available at all events, courtesy of the Tattered Cover.

Our next Writer's Studio guest is Kevin Young, author of Bunk: The Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phonies, Post-Facts, and Fake News, and several collections of poetry including Brown, Book of Hours, and Jelly Roll: A Blues. On March 19, Young will read from Bunk and will sit down with journalist Tina Griego for an in-depth conversation about the intersection of fact, fiction, and art at the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. On March 20, Young will lead a craft talk workshop at Lighthouse called "The Lyric Body." This talk will explore recent adventures in the ancient form of the lyric, that primal mode of song and sustenance. Where does the line live? In beats? In breath? Participants will discuss various forms—including the three-line novel and the sonnet—in order to discover new paths in reading and writing.
