The Gloucester Writers Center was founded to celebrate, preserve and promote the future of Gloucester’s rich literary legacy. Housed in the former home of poet Vincent Ferrini (1913-2007), the GWC is dedicated to fostering the tradition of local poetic investigation practiced by Ferrini and his friend and renowned Gloucester poet, Charles Olson (1910-1970). Through a variety of community-based programming, including literary readings, workshops, youth programs, topical writers’ talks and conferences, and a residency program, the GWC will serve as a gathering place and resource center for local and international writers in all genres, fields and realms of interest.

"my visit to the
Gloucester Writers Center was very inspirational...
There's something about that set of rooms, the Center,
that seems to shout "Yes!" to poetry, writing, rumination,
study and planning."
The Gloucester Writers Center is a place for working writers in a town that knows about work.
