FAQs

When will workshops and events begin at the Writers House?

We won't be hosting anything in-person until it's safe both for participants and residents. We suspect this won't happen until Summer of 2021 at the earliest. However, we'll be hosting online workshops -- many of which will be announced and serve as donor rewards throughout this fundraising campaign. Keep checking back here and our Instagram account, to learn about any workshops. We'll also share new virtual workshop opportunities and events online. However, our focus in this first year is to house four residents, support their growth as writers and offer them housing stability during an unstable time.

How will our residents safely move to the House during COVID?

All incoming residents will be tested for COVID prior to their move-in date. If necessary, we'll work with writers who need to quarantine until results arrive -- with some local writers delivering food baskets to their doors. What's most. important: we'll work with every resident to make sure this transition is as safe, smooth and stress-free as possible.

When will residents move into the House?

We'll be flexible about move-in dates, but we'll be announcing selected residents in early August and moving residents into the house as early as early September. We hope all residents are in the house by late October.
