As we launch our annual fund drive for 2012, we ask you to consider giving a gift to support and sustain the Community of Writers.

Every summer, the Community of Writers comes together to create a magic place where serious writing is discussed and deep truths about the craft are absorbed, taken home, and applied.

We depend on your generosity to keep the workshop spaces filled with talented participants, and the stage illuminated with the brightest literary lights in the nation.

The reward for our effort is the bonds developed in our programs, the renewed dedication to the literary arts we all experience at Squaw, and the ever-expanding list of successfully published writers, poets and screenwriters we have helped.

But we can't do it without your help. Like any literary organization, we are unable to cover costs solely through participant fees. And in the past few years, we have seen dramatically increasing costs in Squaw Valley for our venue facilities, housing, food, and staff travel—the very infrastructure of our summer workshops.


Our community possesses what it most requires: good people. And we absolutely rely on friends like you to help us continue to host emerging writers here in the hills.

The happy results of our workshops reverberate throughout our cultural community as our alums find publication success and, eventually, readers.

Please send your gift today!
