All are welcome to visit, listen, contribute, or just stay a while.

Tucked within the arts quadrant on the campus of Franklin & Marshall College, the Writers House is an actual house, a lovely arts and crafts-style cottage, complete with comfy couches, kitchen, and a fireplace. We serve as a literary performance space for the college community; a podium for hundreds of world-class and emerging authors; an incubator for student-run publications and programs; a classroom for writing-related courses; and a hub for creative innovation on campus.
