Inspiring People to Write & Share Their Stories

heading-bk

Write On, Door County focuses on the importance of writing, reading, and connecting people through stories. Nestled on a beautiful and inspiring 59-acre campus in the middle of the Door County peninsula, you'll discover classes, programs, and special events year-round for writers of all ages and levels of experience.

Beginning Monday, April 8, Highway 42 will be closed from Sturgeon Bay to Egg Harbor. For those who use this route to come to Write On, the easiest alternate route is to take Highway 57 north to Baileys Harbor. In downtown Baileys Harbor, turn left onto County EE. Follow it west until it ends at Highway 42. Turn right onto 42, proceed north for approximately one mile to Juddville Road and turn right. The writing center is on the left.

Beginning Monday, May 13, there will be construction on Highway 42 starting at County Road EE. If you wish to avoid construction, take County Road EE to County Road A. Turn right onto A and head north approximately one mile to Juddville Road. Turn left onto Juddville.

Our inspiring programs are held in person at our Writing Center, at various locations in the community, and online. Unless otherwise noted, programs take place at the center.

Writers can work on a current project and find inspiration for the next without the distractions that hound them at home. Residencies range from one week to one month.
