SOMOS has secured a place for words in Taos
– because words can change worlds. 

Our place is located at 108 Civic Plaza Drive, in the heart of the cultural corridor of the historic district of Taos. An unexpected bequest received in late 2016 from Sue Carol Francis of Fort Collins, Colorado, allowed SOMOS to dream of a brighter future. Using the bequest to make a down payment, SOMOS embarked on an unknown journey. The goal – to raise enough money to purchase the property and secure a permanent place for words in Taos, New Mexico. It was a journey that you became a part of – through sharing our story, contributing to the capital campaign, and believing it was possible.

Meet the 132 individuals who helped secure SOMOS's place for words in Taos.


MISSION STATEMENT: We support and nurture the literary arts, written and spoken, by providing both place and resources for writers, readers and learners while honoring the cultural diversity of Taos and the Southwest.
