Membership Makes Financial Sense

Becoming a member of Lighthouse not only has its privileges, like discounted rates for workshops and literary events, but it also means that you care about literature and creativity—and you care about literary community here in Colorado and beyond. You believe in the power of the literary arts, and subscribe to the notion that a thriving arts culture needs good literature, and good writers.

Lighthouse members are entitled to the discounted member rate for all adult workshops and enjoy a host of members-only writing events including Friday 500, Member Writing Hours, and Willfully Submit. New in 2015: Lighthouse members qualify for discounted subscriptions rates to Colorado Review and Copper Nickel. Plus, you can feel the good vibes, because your membership supports:

  • The largest independent literary center and organized literary community in the West,
