The Chester Writers House is many things.
A hub for experienced and emergent writers and all those who care about the written word.
A gathering space for members of the Chester community who are seeking support for their skills and an outlet for their voices.
A growing network of advocates for the arts and creative expression in Chester and the region.
It is the brainchild of Jayne Thompson, a faculty member in English and Creative Writing, and the fruit of hours of herculean labors on her part as well as the dedicated interns with whom she works. These interns — Tyler Goodwin, Kimberlee Roberts, and Victoria Giansante — are English and Creative Writing majors interested in creating a community of writers beyond the campus and the classroom.
The Chester Writers House offers fiction and memoir-writing workshops, sessions on resume writing and grammar, and a host of other activities. English and Creative Writing students may also apply for internships.
