The Mesa Refuge offers two-week residencies to emerging and established writers and other creatives focused on innovative thinking in the areas of nature, human economy and social equity.
The Mesa Refuge was founded in 1997 by Peter Barnes to support writers addressing the compelling issues of our time. Since then, more than 600 residents have allowed the magic of this place–at the edge of the natural and human worlds–to inspire innovative thinking and writing.
Using the gift of space and time provided here, Mesa Refuge writers such as Michael Pollan, Terry Tempest Williams, Van Jones, Rebecca Solnit, Raj Patel and Krista Tippett stir essential discourses that ripple far beyond the Mesa Refuge.
