Completed in 2002, The Writing House is the only building in the United States dedicated to the craft of writing at the pre-college level. Designed in the style of a northwoods lodge, the building features rustic flagstone fireplaces and soaring wood beams. Creative Writing students can often be found in every corner of the building—discussing poetry by the fire or hard at work in a quiet, cozy nook. The central Great Room is equipped with a lighting and sound system for readings by students, faculty, and guests. Other amenities include classrooms, conference rooms, community-use printers, and a full kitchen—stocked with plenty of coffee, tea, and hot cocoa.
