PEN America Denver is proud to sponsor the [margins.] Literary Conference. Brought to you by The Word, [margins.] was created in 2020, by and for people on the margins, promoting the inclusive representation of experiences in literature for communities who have historically been excluded. The first of its kind, [margins.] is a conference, bookfair, and literary festival. [margins.] brings together writers, storytellers, and wordsmiths at all levels of experience to explore emerging trends in literature and the many approaches to storytelling, visioning and creating, education, inclusion, advocacy, organizing, and building community.
The 2nd [margins.] Conference will be a hybrid conference. It will convene nationally online and curating a local in-person experience for residents of the metro Denver area (occupied Cherokee, Cheyenne, and Ute land) August 5-7, 2022.
The two PEN America Denver sponsored panels will produce meaningful conversations on the overarching topic of press freedom.
