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 about 15 creative writing courses in poetry, fiction, non-fiction, memoir, and scriptwriting. Our instructors include published and prize-winning writers.

In addition to its classes, Musehouse offers author’s readings two to four Saturday evenings a month. These readings are free and open to the public and provide an opportunity for attendees to hear new and exciting work as well as to engage in conversation about craft and publication.

Our Mission is to provide a home for writers of varying ages and levels of experience in poetry, fiction, non-fiction, memoir and scriptwriting through workshops, conferences, readings and special events.
