The Steamboat Writers Group is a program of Steamboat Creates

For most of the year we meet at the Arts Depot for our in-person meetings. From June through mid-August, we have an alternate meeting place due to the Depot’s summer children’s programs. Out summer location is usually at the Steamboat Art Museum on the corner of Lincoln Avenue and 8th Street in downtown Steamboat Springs. 

For remote folks, we continue to use a Zoom link.  Either in-person or online, all are welcome to join in. 

For more info, please email steamboatwriters@gmail.com.


Writers of all genres and levels of experience are welcome to read their unpublished works. We do not critique content. Instead, we offer positive advice on whether the writing is effective. Each participant may read for about ten minutes and then receive a few minutes of comments. Times vary depending on how many readers we have. By meeting weekly instead of monthly like other groups, we are able to keep a degree of momentum on longer works. 

Please join us!

“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
—Enid Bagnold
