Writers Warehouse (formerly Boulder Writers Warehouse) is an ever evolving creative project motivated by artistic community and liberating expression.
The Warehouse is more than a location tied to a zip code. In a gesture of geographic liberation, we believe in sharing our resources with a wider community including Denver, Longmont, Boulder, Arvada, Aurora, Broomfield, Louisville, Nederland, and beyond. Let’s expand our landscape to nurture new ideas and unexpected works that push the boundaries of artistic disciplines and redefine borders.
We believe in equity, accessibility, and economic justice. We believe in creating work that touches on the global and the local scales. A core commitment remains nurturing relationships with diverse collaborators.
Poetic expression is more than what can be contained on the page. We support our artistic community as a whole to explore creation, self-publication, and performance through a variety of mediums.
Universities have their role. They serve as incubators, producers of knowledge, and holders of vast resources. We aim to continue collaborating with universities as stakeholders and their students as catalysts. We want to additionally offer a reimagination of the academic industrial complex and our roles as individuals and communities within and adjacent to these institutions. How can we transform them in a way that moves and adapts to changing communities and climates?
Poetry has the capacity to unite us. In the words of Audre Lorde, “Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.”
Join us in building and being bridges through words, performances, visual creations, community action, and education
