This project is made possible by a donation from the Marilynne Robinson Young Writers Fund.

Lost Horse Press and the East Bonner County Library established the Marilynne Robinson Young Writers Fund to honor Sandpoint-born writer, Marilynne Robinson, whose novel, Gilead, won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize. Donations to the Fund will be used to provide honoraria to writing and book arts instructors, to purchase required supplies, to match funds for grants, to cover instructors’ travel expenses, and to help with cost of publicity and outreach for the annual Young Writers of the Lost Horse creative writing and book arts conference. To learn more about the Marilynne Robinson Young Writers Fund or to make a tax-deductible contribution, please contact Gloria Ray at the Sandpoint Library, 263.6930.
