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 complete with comfy couches, a 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.

Whether you’re a writer, a reader, or a performer, there are an infinite number of ways to get involved with Writers House. There are plenty of writing workshops, including The Nest, L.I.F.T., and the Sad Seniors Writing Group, and student publications such as Epilogue, Plume, and Badaboom are always looking for editors and contributors.

For more information on all things Writers House, or to just get added to our email list, contact Jo Underhill (, or stop by any time!
