Keep the Creative Fire Burning!

Carrot Ranch Literary Community provides a safe space for writers to practice, polish and share their creative writing 99 words at a time. It’s a place where writers can incubate ideas for longer works or different projects.

A safe place for literary art practices appreciative inquiry to build upon a writer’s strengths. Read more about the Value of Literary Art.

The Lead Buckaroo frequently helps writers behind the barns, too. She shares her marketing experience and frequently beta-reads developing manuscripts.

Carrot Ranch provides free literary outreach to veteran centers, libraries and rural communities that do not have access to literary arts programs. Wrangling Words can be offered by any Rough Writer thus spreading the outreach.

As the Ranch and outreach grow, so do the administrative costs. The goals for the collaborative anthologies and Flash Fiction Rodeo collections include sustainability, a travel fund for Rough Writers and future profit sharing.

Patronage is one way for the Ranch to grow its infrastructure and work toward meeting the publication goals.

Grub Stake by D. Avery

“Hey, Pal. Aussie was wonderin’ how to git the stakes up for the ranch.”

“That’s right, Kid.”

“Hey, Pal, what if we had like a contest, where you pay to play. But no judging. Anyone that wrangles is a winner.”

“And if you just come by to read you can pay too?”

“Yeah, I reckon’ anyone could pay. Unless they can’t. Or already did.”

“They probably already did.”

“Did you ante up?”

“I gave some.”

“Some is good, Pal.”

“Kid, my name ain’t Pal.”

“I know.”

“So stop calling me Pal. Or else.”

“What? You’ll make me pay, Pal?”
