From the Listings desk: Sign up by Sept. 8 for the Pikes Peak Writing Marathon. Slated for noon to 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 11, this fest hosted by the Southern Colorado Writing Project will begin in the Carnegie Reading Room at the Penrose Library (20 N. Cascade Ave.), and from there progress to various "cafés, pubs and public spaces in downtown Colorado Springs."
You can write anything you want, be it poetry, fiction or whatever your current project is (the beginnings of what could be a NaNoWriMo novel? Not that you'd cheat, of course).
The event is free, and all you need are your writing implements of choice. You have to be at least 18, though, and you have to RSVP (contact: 719/549-2595, or firstname.lastname@example.org). Find more info here.
