Carrot Ranch Literary Community

Home » Literary Outreach » Resources


Carrot Ranch is guided by a mission to make literary art more accessible. More people writing; more people reading. The pursuit of literary art improves our skills of critical analysis, expression, creativity and collaboration.

These are skills we all need, writers or not. It’s how we can understand and experience the world.

In addition to a weekly flash fiction prompt, the Ranch also offers resources, subscriptions, and links to support writers on a path to publish.

Charli Mills, Lead Buckaroo, offers a Community Literary Art Package based on past endeavors to connect rural artists, teach craft skills, guide good platform building, and play with words in public. Some of the programs are free. This package is a traveling show and can be developed to fit the needs of any community. Preference given to communities lacking access to literary art development.
