Writing the West is an art history and creative writing adventure led by the creative staff from the American Museum of Western Art and Lighthouse Writers Workshop. Every month at Writing the West, participants learn a little bit about the Museum’s paintings and artists, use engaging writing prompts to respond to the art, and share and discuss their findings all within a framework of Western themes.

At August's session, "Landscape Re-Imagined," instructors from Lighthouse and AMWA will pair paintings from the Museum with the Land Library's distinct landscape—the Mosquito Range, South Platte River, skyscapes, the Buffalo Peaks Ranch homestead, and other points of interest to inspire your writing. The workshop fee is $25, plus a $3.16 ticketing fee. More details and directions will follow. Feel free to send any questions to [email protected]

The American Museum of Western Art—The Anschutz Collection is an art museum in Denver. You will be surprised to see more than cowboys and landscapes on view. The three floors of galleries reveal a range of styles and subject matter, from the historic to the contemporary. We invite you to step back into the American West and allow western art take you on a journey.

Lighthouse Writers Workshop works to ensure that literature maintains its proper prominence in the culture and that individuals achieve their fullest potential as artists and human beings.
