Wordhorde - Creation and Presentation of Spoken and Written Word


Wordhorde is a group of students who enjoy the creation and presentation of spoken and written word. Troupe members have majors ranging from communication to graphic design or from business to psychology. Our troupe travels across the state of Colorado performing in towns such as Carbondale and at local coffee shops in the Gunnison area.  Wordhorde hosts multiple events in a variety of venues. We have annual semester events, including a Halloween party, and host well known poets like Kenneth Arkind and Buddy Wakefield. We enjoy new faces and the more the merrier!  Feel free to contact us through our president to find out more information or ask any questions.

Participation is open to anyone who wants to join in the celebration.

Co-Presidents: Jennifer Cirkovic  and Brett Nielsen
