The Writer's Center cultivates the creation, publication, presentation, and dissemination of literary work.

For over 40 years, The Writer's Center has been a home for writers from all over the Washington metropolitan area. We are an independent literary organization with a global reach, rooted in a dynamic community of writers. As one of the premier centers of our kind in the country, we believe the craft of writing is open to people of all backgrounds and ages. Writing is interdisciplinary and unique among the arts for its ability to touch on all aspects of the human experience. It enriches our lives and opens doors to knowledge and understanding.
