COVID-19 Safety Plan: While the heritage house is temporarily closed to visitors, writers-in-residence continue to live and work at the house and offer writing workshops and other programs online. Experience the house from home or take a virtual tour. Outdoor guided tours will resume in February 2021.
While in residency, our writers share their thoughts on our blog, give out valuable writing advice, and engage with the community via different programs of writing-focused activities. Read all about it here and don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter, so you don’t ever miss a new blog post or event!
