Home for the Holidays

Do you need to be in a specific place or in a particular set of circumstances to write?

Do you ever wonder about how classic writers have managed? Or more specifically, where?

Well, wonder no more. Writers' Houses allows you to look at the homes of over 100 writers, though of course there is no reason to believe that all writers wrote at home. Maybe they went to their epoch-equivalents of coffee shops. But this website is a start. Browse by author, state, city or internationally to see the homes of writers such as Dante, Bronte, Woolf, and Wolfe.

And follow the blog portion to learn more about authors' homes, restoration of them, events held at them, and articles and essays about them.

There's even a shop, just in time for holiday giving to your favorite writers.
