The Writer’s Center
Offering authors and poets a supportive community in which to practice their craft, The Writer’s Center marked its 40th anniversary in 2016. The Bethesda nonprofit, which draws writers of all genres and abilities from around the region, offers more than just classes or readings. It also provides a comfortable place to share work and build relationships. Plans for the center include broadening its physical and influential reach through a $1.5 million renovation of its Walsh Street building and through new programming, such as literary pub crawls. The renovation work, which will modernize the building and make it more accessible, is scheduled to begin in June.
