Blue Stoop
A Home for Philly Writers


A home for literary Philly, Blue Stoop's mission is to support and nurture writers and readers from all walks of life who live in the greater Philadelphia area. We believe storytelling and writing makes us smarter, more empathetic, and more connected.



We curate an author series which puts nationally touring writers in conversation with local writers. Events are held at bookstores & cultural venues throughout Philadelphia.



We offer rigorous courses in the craft of writing. 8 week classes are available September-November and January-March; weekend intensives are offered throughout the year.

Happy Hours

On the third Sunday of every month, we gather for an informal evening of meeting, talking, and building community at Win Win Coffee.
