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.

Writing Across the Civil-Military Divide: Fiction
2-part workshop
Mondays, June 22 & 29, 6-7 pm
Marine veteran and fiction writer Phil Klay writes that “Believing war is beyond words is an abrogation of responsibility — it lets civilians off the hook from trying to understand, and veterans off the hook from needing to explain.” In this workshop, we’ll explore how fiction has been used to explain experiences of war (both abroad and at home) and make our own efforts at using fiction to both explain and understand the civil-military divide.

Flash Fiction’s incredibly fast storytelling blends narrative depth with poetic imagery in 1,500 words or less. Quite a lot of flash fiction writing delivers deep cultural, personal, and political meanings. We’ll learn to distill imagery, characterization, theme, point of view, and tone into just a few pages or paragraphs to craft very, very short stories with important messages about the human condition.

Join the CWC as we explore the power of this popular genre.
