FSU Center for Creative Writing

Located in downtown Frostburg and sponsored by FSU, the Frostburg Center for Creative Writing serves Western Maryland and the surrounding areas by celebrating the literary arts through a variety of public events and productions, by educating and broadening an interested audience for literature, and by fostering new writers and their work.

Do you need a comfortable, vibrant spce to read or write? Then come visit the center at 22 East Main Street in downtown Frostburg. We have coffee, wi-fi access, writing reference books, and contemporary literary journals to browse. We also have free copies of our local publications: Bittersweet, Backbone Mountain Review, and Nightsun. Leave a written poem on our easel pad for display in the window, or add a line via typewriter to our Exquisite Corpse project. While you're at it, check out our local author book display or our animated poetry videos!

The center is a crucial element to the downtown Frostburg arts and entertainment district, sponsoring regularly scheduled events, such as writers' and readers' groups, the annual Nightsun conference, and readings by fiction writers and poets, while forging partnerships with local businesses, including Dante's, Mountain City Coffee and Creamery, Mountain City Traditional Arts and Main Street Books. We are a proud participant of the annual block parties and arts walks and we invite readers and writers to stop in and visit us!
