WORD HOUSE is an emerging entity dedicated to fostering the literary and creative arts in Brattleboro, Vermont (and the surrounding area). Our intention is to offer writing space, workshops, mentoring and readings, all aimed to enrich the writing & artistic lives of a diverse population in our region.


We are currently run by volunteers, and borrow various spaces throughout downtown Brattleboro and Windham County for our workshops, reading and events. (See EVENTS for more details.)


See our EVENTS and WORKSHOPS pages for current offerings.

Contact us for questions, ideas or if you would like to be involved.

If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been
