Hours

Please Note: The Muse Writers Center’s physical space remains closed to the public during Phase III of the state's coronavirus restrictions. We hope to assess the situation with an eye to re-opening to the public with limited hours in late summer.

But our classes and events are continuing online!

The Muse Writers Center is open to the public four days a week for writers to use the space to write, read, or meet others.

Mondays: 12:30-7 p.m.
Tuesdays: 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
Wednesdays: 12:30-5 p.m.
Thursdays: 12:30-7 p.m.

Many of our classes and events are held outside these hours, at which time The Muse will be open to those class or event attendees.
