Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer 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.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. 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.
KCPW 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.
Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the 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.
In this stylish Craft Lake City workshop held at The Gallivan Center, local fiber artist Danielle Susi will teach attendees basic beading and embroidery skills. Participants will then put their new knowledge to use making their own custom embellished brooch to wear or share. Materials will be provided and no experience is necessary. Pre-registration required.
2 Part Workshop on 3/7 and 3/14 from 6-8 p.m. Creative nonfiction (memoirs, profiles, lyric essays, and more) has been used throughout history to shape cultural identities, open minds, encourage social action, and offer insider views into injustice and activism. Memoirs and other forms of creative nonfiction have the power to take readers inside your experiences to learn about and empathize with the histories, triumphs, struggles, and desires that shape the collective human experience via a personal, intimate lens. We’ll learn about and try out a few forms of creative nonfiction to discover how the personal is political.
March 20 & 27 (Wed), 6-8 p.m.

Personal narratives are true stories from our lives that tell of experiences that have had a lasting impact on the way that we perceive and relate to the world around us. As a genre, personal narrative is free from the shackles of form or structural requirements, which allows writers to focus on expressing their experiences and reflecting on them within a single piece of writing. Join us for a fun, in depth dive into writing freely about our lives!
April 6, 13, 20, & 27 (Sat), 1-3 p.m.
April is National Poetry Month! Join the CWC for a workshop series that celebrates poetry in all its glory!

We also encourage you to submit to our 30 Poems in 30 Days contest – winners will have a chapbook of their original work published by the CWC.
April 30 & May 7 (Tues), 6-8 p.m.
Creative writing is hard. We’re here to help. One of the most challenging aspects of any prose, fiction or non-fiction writing is bringing the characters to life on the page. We’ve all read or watched something where a character does something that doesn’t’t make sense. We’ve all been frustrated by characters that exist to drive a plot rather than act in a believable manner. Join us as we work to discover what makes realistic characters and how we can create them in our own writing.
