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 newest issue of Poet Lore has arrived! It opens with an introduction by Christopher Merrill to his translations of the poems of U Tin Moe (Myanmar). Among the poems, you'll find work by Martha Collins, Sherod Santos, and Christopher Presfield, among many others. Visit our Current Issue section for a snapshot of the issue. Order your copy today!
