The Writers House
The Writers House is dedicated to creative writing, reading, and thinking.
We’re a place where poets, fiction writers, scholars, journalists, graphic novelists and filmmakers can connect with and inspire students, faculty, staff, and the wider community.
Think open mics, poetry slams, staged readings, Pulitzer-Prize-winning authors, emerging writers, a student-run literary journal, internships, pizza, space to hang out and write and read and wrestle with ideas.
October 29: Coffeehouse/Open Mic
Come read a poem or story, sing a song, show a film clip, tell a joke, share what you’re making. 7 pm.
