Limerick Writing Workshop
March 3, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm$20
Learn the history and craft of the short, humorous verse that is often nonsensical and frequently ribald. Hewing perfectly to a meter and rhyme scheme is one of the things that make limericks funny, and a good limerick has a clever unanticipated punch line, along with puns, wordplay, and other witty elements. With expert guidance, write your own and enter to win our 2022 Limerick contest with a live reading at the Center’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival. Price includes beer!
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
