Friday 500
Friday 500 is a free event in which we all aim to write 500 words in the first hour. The second hour will be time for attendees to get on the spot feedback on one page of writing from Rachel Weaver, or ask a burning question you might have about writing in general, or a specific element of craft. Fun beverages and snacks provided. Friday 500 happens from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month. This event is open to all writers. it's free, but please do register here so we'll know how many folks to expect: Rachel Weaver is the author of the novel Point of Direction, which Oprah Magazine named a Top Ten Book to Pick Up Now. Point of Direction was chosen by the American Booksellers Association as a top ten debut for Spring 2014, by IndieBound as an Indie Next List Pick, by Yoga Journal as one of their top five suggested summer reads and won the 2015 Willa Cather Award for Fiction. Prior to earning her MFA in Writing and Poetics from Naropa University, Rachel worked for the Forest Service in Alaska studying bears, raptors and songbirds. She is on faculty at Regis University’s low-residency MFA program, and at Lighthouse Writers Workshop. Her work has appeared in The Sun, Gettysburg Review, Blue Mesa Review, Alaska Women Speak and Fly Fishing New England.

What we're about

Lighthouse North (formerly Colorado Writing School) is a group for writers of all levels from any genre. This is a place for writers in the community to come together for various social events and to take classes in which we critique each other's work and talk about all things writing; from generating ideas to plot, structure and character development to publishing. We are the first big satellite location of Lighthouse Writers Workshop.
