About Writers House

Founded in the spring of 2010, The Bowers Writers House at Elizabethtown College is an interdisciplinary venue for expression, study, presentation and performance. Created to promote and support a culture of "creative curiosity," Bowers Writers House brings to our on and off-campus communities a new sense of excitement and enthusiasm for intellectual diversity.

The Bowers Writers House is a four-bedroom three-bathroom house ideally situated just 50 yards off the E-town campus proper between Cedar St. and Cherry St. in Elizabethtown, Pa. Our public events – usually between 15 - 25 each  academic semester -- are always free, though seating is limited; we suggest arriving 10-15 min. before event start time. From dramatic readings to musical performances to interactive panels, our programs offer a dynamic variety of enjoyable and formative experiences.

Programming at Bowers Writers House is possible through both campus-oriented and donor-supported efforts...but we need your help to keep the spirit alive. We enthusiastically invite you to come be a part of our invigorating activities.

I hope to see you here!
