The Gloucester Writers Center is a place for working writers in a working town. We are devoted to the exploration, development and celebration of our diverse voices through dialogue and the artistic process.
Rooted in a spirit of poetic inquiry and profound sense of place that Cape Ann embodies, GWC offers an historic, intimate space for learning and practicing the craft of writing.
