We help connect nationally touring writers to venues in Philadelphia & curate events highlighting local writers that are free & open to the public. Our fall lineup includes Alexander Chee, Robin Black, Tarfia Faizullah, Sara Novic, Casey Gerald, May-Lan Tan, Crystal Hana Kim, Lisa Locascio, and many more.



We offer craft classes for serious early-career writers taught by outstanding local instructors. Our 8-week Winter/Spring 2019 classes in Fiction, Food Writing, & Poetry are enrolling now. We will also offer weekend intensives in novel writing and writing for Young Adults (more info coming soon).

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.
