Your connection to Colorado or to Boulder Writers' Workshop must be made explicit. 

Submissions may take time to review. You will always receive notification from us no matter what, so if you haven’t heard from us, don’t give up hope!

Postcards are short snapshots of life. These personal essays should be 600 words or less. Postcards should bring us, for a moment, into your life for a glimpse of the human experience. We are looking for heartwarming, inspirational, or human interest pieces to indulge our need for true stories and to bring the community together through shared experience and understanding. 

All submissions should be double spaced in black, Times New Roman font. 

We love photographs. If you have any pictures that correspond to your postcard, please send them in and we will publish them alongside your piece.
