The Jiménez-Porter Writers' House is a campus-wide literary center for the study of creative writing across cultures. Writers’ House residents live in a close community of 50 to 60 undergraduate students who share an interest in creating stories, poems, and plays. Students attend colloquia, share their writing with each other in a supportive workshop environment, and attend additional special events together. Writers' House students organize Litfest, our annual literary bash, every Spring. Writers' House offers a one or two year program. Undergraduates and transfer students can apply to the program.
Any member of the campus community may join the editorial staff of Stylus, the campus-wide literary journal housed and supported by Writers' House. Literary study abroad (to Dublin in summer 2012), teaching opportunities, and a service-learning program are also offered to the campus student body at large.
