SOMOS is securing its place in Taos where words matter – because words can change worlds. 

Its place is located at 108 Civic Plaza Drive, in the heart of the cultural corridor of the historic district of Taos. Help us make this purchase a reality so we’ll be mortgage-free by Spring 2019, allowing us to launch new programs to engage the community with literacy, literature and story. Learn more.

SOMOS's live readings, workshops, classes, and festivals showcase published authors and also encourage creativity in novice writers of all ages, with a special focus on aspiring  young writers in the Taos schools.

SOMOS is a membership organization. The generosity of our supporters allows us to honor our commitment of presenting the very best of the literary arts to the Taos area at little or no cost when possible. We cordially invite you to join us in answering the call of the Muse of the Southwest.


MISSION STATEMENT: SOMOS supports and nurtures the literary arts, both written and spoken, honoring cultural diversity in the Southwest. Our vision is to see a community culturally enhanced and enriched through heightened literacy.
