Our “DC Writers’ Homes” Launch was the Housewarming We’ve Always Wanted

September 16, 2019

Not every day do you get the chance to meet your favorite author, let alone visit their home. This past Thursday (Nov. 29th), however, we were granted access into the lives and living rooms of Washington DC’s most celebrated writers… virtually, that is.

DC Writers’ Homes is a project created by authors Kim Roberts and Dan Vera. The HumanitiesDC sponsored study documents the homes of literary authors who once lived in the greater DC region. With over 340 novelists, poets, playwrights and memoirists included in their database, you would be surprised by who you may find.

Their work has now been made available online! During our website launch event, we were able to explore the newly designed database with creators Kim and Dan as our tour guides.

Unable to attend? No Worries! Drop by DCwriters.org and visit the hundreds of prolific penmen who have helped shape our city today.
