Our Mission 

With a front door on historic Cooper Street, the Writers House provides a welcoming space for the campus and community to celebrate writing across diverse disciplines, communities, and media.  

The Writers House is home to the Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing; to Story Quarterly, the English department’s literary magazine; and the Writing and Design Lab, a center for academic and digital literacy.

Writers House programming is always open to both the Rutgers community and the general public: our NEA-supported reading series Writers in Camden, Cooper Street Workshops, and our unique menu of interdisciplinary programs unite artists, scholars, students and citizens around the power of the written word.
