Dawn DiPrince

Dawn DiPrince loves to teach writing. She has helped many people, from age 7 to 87, to become writers. She has taught poetry, journalism, and other writing to middle school students at a local afterschool program. And, through her autobiography writing classes, she has enjoyed teaching hundreds of adults to write their life stories. DiPrince is now the Director of Community Museums for History Colorado and Director of El Pueblo History Museum. When she is not wrestling with budgets or attending meetings, DiPrince can still be found teaching people how to write or share their stories as part of her public history initiative, Museum of Memory. She was selected as a National Arts Strategies Creative Community Fellow for her work in using memory writing to create defensible neighborhoods, and she was recognized for Excellence in Exhibit Label Writing by the American Alliance of Museums for her work on the Children of Ludlow exhibit.
