Programs & Outreach

We’re proud to offer tuition help for those who cannot afford our classes. We also provide conference scholarships and college and graduate school scholarships to our students to wish to further their educaton.

Our outreach programs are always expanding, making sure the literary arts are accessible to everyone. We have several monthly programs in senior and assisted living centers as well as for veterans, service members, and their families, both at The Muse and in military libraries and bases.

Our program for youth is growing every year, with monthly outreach to schools and with youth organizations. We also offer our Teen Writers Fellowship, where eight high school sophomores and juniors from every corner of Hampton Roads attend creative writing classes, work one-on-one with published mentors, and give readings.

We offer a literary library, complete with a large collection of international poetry. Other resources are also available.

Our small staff relies on hundreds of interns, facilitators, and hosts; our volunteers are key to our engagement with the community.
