Fort Lyon Applications Now Open

The Fort Lyon Writer-In-Residence program offers professional writers the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline in a scenic, natural environment while providing hands-on creative writing instruction to homeless veterans in Colorado. Writers will be invited to stay at the Fort Lyon campus, in the Arkansas Valley in southeastern Colorado, for four weeks (dates are flexible and based on the writer's availability), and will be provided a $2,500 stipend, as well as meals and transportation from the Denver area.

Lighthouse Writers Workshop makes me hopeful about the future of the arts in America.
—George Saunders, recipient of the 2017 Man Booker Prize
