Our Mission 

The Writers House at Rutgers University-Camden cultivates and celebrates the writing arts. With a front door on historic Cooper Street, the Writers House is a welcoming space for the campus and the greater community to study, practice, and promote the diverse literary and civic aims of writers.

The Writers House is home to the Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing; to Story Quarterly, the English department’s literary magazine, and Cooper Street, its student-run online journal; and to the Writing and Design Lab, a center for academic and digital literacy. Through a vibrant, year-round program of seminars, workshops, and free public events including Writers in Camden, our NEA-supported reading series, the annual Summer Writers’ Conference, and the Cooper Street Writers Workshops, the Writers House brings together artists and scholars, students and citizens, around the power of the written word.
