We won't name names, but a few tongues have been wagging about the Boulder Writers' Workshop and its programs.
Okay, we'll name names. Who are we to go off the record?
Jenny Shank named the Boulder Writers' Workshop in her feature on Colorado's literary hot spots for Poets & Writers' Magazine. Maybe she's biased -- she is one of our instructors -- but we appreciate the mention in such an illustrious publication. We've also been featured in a story in The Daily Camera and received a nod for our work from CBS Denver.
We thank Nicole LeBoeuf-Littleton, member and writer extraordinaire, a thousand times over for featuring our programs in the Boulder Writer Examiner
In addition to all of that, our members have been kind enough to leave us some words of appreciation that make our ears burn. We'd like to share a few:

"I love going to the Boulder Writers Workshop meetings. Lori puts together a great program each week, and I learn so much from the critique portions.

Since I hate getting up in the morning, and I hate to drive, I can't give the group any higher praise! " — Judy Rose
