Teaching Classes

Would you like to teach a class, hold a workshop or give a talk on a subject you think people would find interesting? Longmont Public Media would love to host you! We encourage all our members to teach. Everyone knows enough about something to teach a class, give a workshop or give a talk on something. You don't need to be a Longmont Public Media member to use the space if it's something of value and that fits with our mission and subject areas.

    If you would like to limit the number of attendees, select "Attendee limit". Event hosts are counted within the number of attendees, so the limit should be set to the total number of hosts and potential students.
