The Lighthouse Beacon Award was created and initially funded by Lighthouse students to honor a Lighthouse faculty member whose teaching evidences a profound and lasting commitment to student writers and to the craft of writing. It's funded entirely by donations, and you're welcome to make a donation, if you so choose. Whether you make a donation or not does not affect this nomination. All nominations are kept confidential.

Past recipients include:

2017: Rachel Weaver
2016: Victoria Hanley
2015: Benjamin Whitmer
2014: Erika Krouse
2013: Chris Ransick
2012: David Rothman
2011: Shari Caudron
2010: Paula Younger
2009: Alexandre Philippe
2008: William Haywood Henderson

Past winners of the award are eligible after a one year grace period. The Beacon Award Committee meets annually to consider these nominations and gives priority to an instructor’s dedication to student writers and the craft of writing. The Beacon Award guidelines allow the committee to consider, among others, the number of classes taught for Lighthouse; the quality and depth of the Instructor’s own writing; and the Instructor’s commitment to Lighthouse Writers. In keeping with Lighthouse’s values, culture, and tradition of creative excellence, the balance of this form may consist of poetry, prose, fiction, non-fiction, screenplay, or any other variant of the written word.
