Page Lambert designs and teaches graduate writing courses for the University of Denver's Master's Program in Professional Creative Writing.
Page has been teaching writing workshops for 22 years, in over 200 venues in the U.S. and British Columbia. She often teaches across genre because, whether she's talking about narrative nonfiction, memoir, or fiction, she believes that all good writing starts at the emotional root of the human experience. The content of her workshops can be customized to fit most audiences, but here are a few of her favorite topics (some based on articles she has written for The Writer Magazine, Sojourns, Huff Post, The Roundup, Terralingua, etc.)
Page's speaking style is intimate, an up-close emotional experience with the audience. Whether speaking about the 12-month trip around the world she took as a teenager, rearing her son and daughter on a small ranch in Wyoming, how her father gave birth to the financial planning industry, the month she spent alone in a remote mountain cabin, or floating down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, she will invite you inside both her joy and sorrow. Here are a few of her favorite speaking topics:
