The Tivoli

The Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) annual conference in Denver April 7-10 was, as expected, fantastic. Not only did the majority of’s editors get together (a rarity given their geographic ranges), but we also met many contributors (and hopefully future contributors) at the table at the AWP bookfair, and got to rub elbows with the good folks at Hawk & Handsaw: The Journal of Creative Sustainability and The LBJ: Avian Life, Literary Arts.

The highlight for us was the / Hawk & Handsaw “Wild Lives / Raucous Pens” reading at the Tivoli, a historic brewery near downtown. Many thanks to Jake Adam York, University of Colorado – Denver, and Copper Nickel for helping us with the space, which was a beautiful room with a wrought-iron balcony, exposed brick walls, large copper vats in the back, and a bank of windows overlooking downtown behind the readers.

We’ve posted a slideshow of 27 photos recapping our visit to Denver. Check it out at:

And don’t forget about our inaugural contests in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry with an August 1 deadline!
