Lodging is not included in the tuition for Summer Words, and participants should make their own lodging arrangements. All workshops and lunches, and most afternoon and evening events will take place at our conference headquarters, The Gant. For those traveling from out of town, we do recommend staying at The Gant so as to be close to other participants, faculty, and events. Aspen Words has set aside a block of rooms at The Gant, so applicants to the juried workshops can wait until early April to make lodging reservations. Please make reservations as soon as possible and prior to April 30. After that, discounts may no longer apply. Discounted accommodations are also available at St. Moritz Lodge. The following rates include the Summer Words participant discount:
To book a room, call reservations at 970.920.6061 and let them know you are participating in Summer Words.
