Visiting Writers

We bring eminent authors to Park County for extended stays, during which they interact with the public, the local arts community, and regional school children in order to enhance and invigorate the landscape of ideas within our rural community.

We bring together some of the most celebrated nature writers in the United States and students who are serious about fostering a connection with the environment in their writing.
