Our Community Calendar is a volunteer-run resource offered to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.

The Community Calendar also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:

  • The event must take place in Utah.
  • The organization promoting the event  must be a qualified 501(c)(3) charity or political subdivision.
  • The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.

If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.

We would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization.  Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible.

Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event. If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.

NOTE:  approved events are typically posted to the Community Calendar within seven days of your submission.

Please submit requests at least 14 days before your event – listings read on-air are chosen at random, the week of the event.

In this workshop, we’ll write and read memoir and other forms of creative non-fiction towards making sense of contemporary military experiences.

Writing Across the Civil-Military Divide: Artists’ Books Lecture @ Marriott Library
Mar 7 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Writing Across the Civil-Military Divide: Artists’ Books Lecture @ Marriott Library

1-Part Workshop
Saturday March 7th, 1-3 pm

From historical, foundational book forms to unexpected, innovative book forms, writers and artists have collaborated to emphasize message. Such a collaboration prompts new consideration of relationships between text, image and form. Form creates a place to combine language with visual elements. Image adds to the understanding of text. Both interact with text to enhance intimacy between writer and reader. Artists’ books develop narratives using typography, photographs, postcards, paper scraps, cutting, folding, erasing and other components suggesting history, people, dates, and events, real and imagined. Artists’ books emphasize a physical engagement with language.

This presentation by Luise Poulton offers participants a hands-on opportunity to read and discuss war stories that consider form and image as integral parts of storytelling: encouraging problem-solving, enhancing multicultural awareness, inspiring pride in heritage, and employing multiple intelligences with language to convey meaning.

Luise Poulton is Managing Curator and Head of the Rare Books Department, Special Collections, J. Willard Marriott Library, The University of Utah.

Cost: Free. No registration is required.

Advanced Creative Writing: Creating Compelling Plots @ SLCC Community Writing Center

2-Part Workshop
Thursdays March 19 & 26, 6 pm-8 pm

One of the most challenging aspects of any prose, fiction or non-fiction, is putting a compelling plot together. Unfortunately, plots are not one size fits all. Different types of stories require different elements of plot. Some, like mysteries, need a tight plot line full of twists, while more experimental writing, like collage, may let the reader fill the plot in themselves. Join us as we look at how plots work in different stories, and how to find the right plot for your own writing.

Thursdays April 30 & May 7, 6 pm—8 pm

Social media encompasses any platform or application (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, etc.) that enables users to create, remix, and mashup content intended to be shared within online and digital spaces. Additionally, social media is one of the primary means through which people spread ideas and information as well as create conflict and stay within our own ideological bubbles. In this workshop, you will learn how to best structure your social media posts intended for audiences that may disagree with you so that you might use methods of persuasion in positive, ethical, and productive ways.

Cost: Free. Registration is required.
