The old stone mansion in which it is located was once a brothel and a church, and it provides many private spaces to write in quiet, and also doubles as an event space for readings and workshops. Their workshops include ones on poetry, fiction, nonfiction and memoir, and many are taught by famous visiting authors. For kids, they have summer writing programs.
