We’re a nonprofit and a community of writers and thinkers organizing free education in philosophy and creative writing.
The People’s Colloquium’s offerings relate to the study of philosophy and the practice of creative writing, with a focus on both poetry and prose.
All offerings are free, though The People’s Colloquium accepts donations to fund its programs—we appreciate those who can help!
The Colloquium provides scheduling, logistics, facilitation, the maintenance of electronic and real-time spaces, and funding for events, as needed. The People, such as yourself, provide knowledge, perspective, and connection in the form of peers, mentors, and teachers.
We’re united by our desire to learn. Ready to get started?
A Colloquium is an academic conference or seminar. We use it in the colloquial (ha!) sense of “getting people together and getting them talking.”
It’s pronounced: Ka-low-quee-um.
