Writer's Center



This summer we’ll be starting renovations on the lower level of our Center in Bethesda. During the months of July and August, the Center will remain open, but we’ll be moving some of our workshops off-site. For more information, Click here.









The special 125th Anniversary issue of Poet Lore has arrived!  It opens with a chorus of poems on race--from reportage to meditations on labor, marriage, and folklore--and includes a portfolio of historic and personal perspectives on the journal. Visit our Current Issue section for a snapshot of the issue. Order your copy today!
