Love words like us? Please consider making a contribution this year!

Memberships and sponsorships are available at many different levels and make a huge impact no matter how much you give. Whether you’re a reader or a writer, or are encouraging a loved-one, please join us in our efforts to:

  • Bring the world’s best contemporary writers to Aspen to share their stories with us from the stage.
  • Provide scholarships for the most promising emerging writers across the country in an Aspen Summer Words writing workshop or Writing Residency.
  • Inspire middle school and high school students to express themselves through the written and spoken word, improving communication skills, creativity, and courage to speak in public.
  • Encourage a network of local writers to complete and perfect their projects.


Individual donations and sponsorships make Aspen Words programming possible. Thanks for your support!
