We help connect nationally touring writers to venues in Philadelphia & curate events highlighting local writers that are free & open to the public. Our spring lineup includes Esmé Weijun Wang, Nicole Chung, Carmen Machado, Blythe Roberson, Halle Butler, and many more.



We offer craft classes for serious early-career writers taught by outstanding local instructors. Applications for our weekend intensives in novel writing and writing for Young Adults are now open.

Happy Hours

On the third Sunday of every month, we gather at collectively-owned WIN WIN Coffee Bar to create an informal space where literary writers can meet, exchange resources, and just be together. Sometimes we’ll have a special guest or theme.
