Ike's Canyon Ranch Residency is designed to give writers a few weeks of true silence and concentration in wild nature to dig deeply into their work.

Ike's Canyon Ranch is set in one of the least populated, most remote and wild areas in the contiguous 48 states. It's about 30 miles of dirt road off Nevada state Highway 50, also known as the Loneliest Road in America. Here the noise of the outside world goes quiet, replaced by gentle wind, bird call and the sound of your own thoughts. Still, not everyone wants to come try life in the high plains desert.

The Ike's Canyon residencies are intended for those who do.

The residency is designed to give writers a few weeks of true silence and concentration to dig deeply into their work. Residents will find both solitude and community with a small cohort of other writers sharing the residency.
