    The Working Writer

    You’re the backbone of the literary community. You take workshops and you love to talk about ideas with fellow writers and readers. You buy (new) hardcover books as gifts. You want to ensure that Lighthouse is around for years to come. With your support, it will be. Join at this level and receive all of the membership benefits listed above plus a swanky custom Lighthouse journal and pen.

    Standard Membership

    You love literature. Your head is full of ideas for a novel, short stories, poetry collection, memoir, or screenplay. Lighthouse can help. At the Standard membership level, you’ll receive a discount on all adult workshops, special rates for yearly retreats and events, the e-newsletter, invitations to Lighthouse events including parties and readings, and members-only writing events.


    You’re a struggling student, you’re blissfully retired, or you are leading the next generations into an educated world. Join at this level and you’ll receive our e-newsletter and invitations to member events and parties. You like parties with witty repartee, don’t you?


    The Literary Mentor

    You read, you write; you’re a vibrant leader in the community. Others look to you for inspiration and encouragement. Your support inspires us, and at this level, you’ll receive all the goodies listed above plus one surprise Lighthouse swag item.

    The Patron

    You’re the rare and generous benefactor that has been supporting great art for centuries. (Are you a descendent of the Medicis, by any chance?). You know that the world would be a darker place without books and plays and poetry. At this level, you’ll get all of the member benefits listed above, plus a copy of our latest community engagement anthology.

    The Publisher

    Art for art’s sake? Dandy. But literature is more powerful when it’s available to the masses. You’re a generous sort, and you understand that your support makes Lighthouse possible for everyone. At this level, you’ll get all of the member benefits listed above, plus honorable mention as a supporter on our website and annual report.
