Blue Stoop
A Home for Philly Writers


We help connect nationally touring writers to venues in Philadelphia & curate events highlighting local writers that are free & open to the public.

Author Events

We curate an events series that puts nationally touring writers in conversation with local Philadelphia writers. All events are free & open to the public. We also host an informal writers happy hour on the third Sunday of each month. Click here for images from our past events.

The Hatchery: Blue Stoop Student Takeover

  • The Monkey Club 2101 E York Street Philadelphia, PA 19125 (map)

The Hatchery is one of Philadelphia’s long-running reading series. This year, they are trying something a little different: each month they will feature one local writing organization.

In December, Blue Stoop will have the honor of talking a little about our project & presenting the work of a few students from our fall cohort: Kelly Braun, Christine Olivas, Ellen Rhudy, Allegra Armstrong, Lauren Holguin, and Corey Qureshi.

So come on out! And, as usual, we will play Philadelphia's best writing prompt game, The Fishbowl, and free bar tabs for the funniest, wittiest, and strangest answers.

Earlier Event: December 8
