On Thursday, 25 May 2023, Helicon West is pleased to begin our summer season with an all open-mic event at the Cache-ARTS Thatcher Young Mansion (35 West 100 South). We hope to see you there with your favorite work.
If you missed our Taking Humor Seriously Workshop with Tim Keller, you can watch below:
Aaaand I’m back again:) Just to be on the safe side, Helicon West will be canceled through the summer. This should give everyone some time to polish up past projects and start new ones! Here’s hoping things will be better in September…
Hello, my dear community members! I know it’s been a hot second since we’ve been able to meet together, and it’s been a stressful time for everyone, but we’re hopeful that we’ll be able to restart Helicon West over the summer.
So…summer events will *tentatively* begin every fourth Thursday of the summer months in the Bonneville Room of the Logan Library. Different room, but the rest of the drill is the same. 7 pm, with your wonderful writing.
May 28 Open mic night
June 25 Open mic night
July 23 Guest Dayna Patterson
August 27 Open mic night
We have a prospective schedule for Fall 2020 as well, though it seems that some events are still up in the air. Note that we’re getting another chance to hear from Amber Caron and Natalie Rogers. That’s an absolute gift 🙂

More information will come as these events get closer, but this is what we have to hope for. Stay safe!
Attention fellow community members! We all know that some crazy things have been going on with COVID-19, and unfortunately as a result, all USU-sponsored events have been canceled. While this news is sad, I hope that everyone will be able to stay safe and healthy. Take care of yourselves!
This January, Adam Fagin is offering a workshop session to our community. He will be touching and fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, so this an ideal opportunity for any kind of writer. There is further information on the flyer below.
