This website is dedicated to the memory and work of the preeminent Southwest writer, Frank Waters. The Frank Waters Foundation's primary purpose is to promote an awareness of Waters’ works as well as the arts in general by sponsoring educational workshops,  and making available inspirational living space, at the Foundation headquarters in Arroyo Seco, New Mexico, in which creative persons can work for limited periods. The Web site also provides access to information about the chronology of the man, his writings, the writings of his widow Barbara, and the Frank Waters Southwest Writing Award and Residency Program.

Additionally, there is an intimate glimpse of Frank the person, his friends and family,  important pieces of the Waters’ legacy. You will also find Frank’s book list, book reviews, tributes and photographs taken throughout his long career. There is information about the activities of the Foundation as it pursues its goal of “Sheltering the Creative Spirit” and more.
