Memorial Gift in Honor of Lisa Rosen Creates Scholarships for LLG Workshops!

Deanna Ludwin, who met Lisa at Colorado State 25 years ago, has given a gift of $200 to sponsor workshop scholarships in her honor. The scholarships are available to women poets who want to attend one of the Guild’s one-day craft workshops. Lisa’s love of poetry lives on — thank you Deanna, for your generous gift! If you would like to apply for a workshop, please get in touch with Toni Van Deusen at

Creative Nonfiction Group coming in September 2009

Led by Janet W. Hardy, MFA (co-author, The Ethical Slut and many more). If you’re interested in memoir, personal essay, travel writing, food writing, personal journalism, or any other fact-based personal writing, this is the group for you. NB: The queer, the erotic and the strange are welcome here, so if you’re easily shocked this may not be the best group for you. Time and place TBA based on response. To learn more, email Janet at; please use Creative Nonfiction Group as the subject of your email.

New Poetry Group Forming

The Guild is growing. A fourth poetry critique group was created in September 2008. Poetry 1, Poetry 2 aka the Red Sofa Poets, and Poetry 4 aka the Let Them Eat Cake Poets, are all at capacity.
