Musehouse, a non-profit Center for the Literary Arts located in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, is a comfortable and nurturing environment where writers of all ages and levels can hone their craft and share their work publicly.

Musehouse offers a roster of 20 creative writing courses in poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and playwriting. Instructors include published and prize-winning authors and seasoned teachers from local colleges and other literary organizations.

In addition to its classes, Musehouse offers author’s readings two to four Saturday evenings a month. Free and open to the public, these readings have included writers ranging from Swarthmore professor and poet Nathalie Anderson to nationally renowned memoirist Kelle Groome to local crime noir novelist Hugh Gilmore.
