Becoming a member of Lighthouse not only has its privileges, like discounted rates for workshops and free events, but it also means that you care about literature and creativity—and the literary community here in Colorado is meaningful to you. 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.

    Just so you know, your membership may take 24 hours to activate if you choose the monthly payment option. We respectfully ask all monthly members to make a ten-month commitment.

    The Working Writer

    You’re the backbone of the literary community. You take workshops and 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 the membership benefits listed at the Standard level, plus a swanky custom Lighthouse journal and pen.

    Standard Membership

    Your passion for literature runs deep, and your mind brims with ideas for novels, short stories, poetry collections, memoirs, and screenplays. Fortunately, Lighthouse is here to support your creative journey. By joining at the Standard membership level, you'll enjoy a range of benefits, including discounted rates and early access to all workshops, exclusive pricing for our annual retreats and events, invitations to engaging Lighthouse events like parties and readings, and exclusive access to members-only writing hours.


    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.
