Pearl S. Buck Writing Center
Writing at a Writer’s House
Join us at the National Historic Landmark site where Pearl S. Buck penned many of her literary works. Whether you want to learn about publishing a book, writing non-fiction, submitting a manuscript of your memoirs, our year-round calendar of writing events and classes will give you the tools you need to bring out your best literary work.
Our monthly Writers Guild meetings (the third Sunday afternoons from March to October) are where we share and critique our writing work-in-progress. In a friendly atmosphere, we encourage, support, and challenge writers to improve whether they are experienced writers or beginners. Our monthly Newsletter provides updates on the latest ideas on the writing craft and its opportunities. Guild members may also use request editing assistance from our skilled editorial staff.
To help our writers, the editors provide opportunities to get published:
► Pearl S. Buck Writing Center Press (WCP) which has produced ten books including one novel, one collection of short stories, one collection of essays, one book of poetry, four memoirs and two children’s books, all using Amazon’s CreateSpace system, with several other memoirs currently in production.
► Pearl S. Buck Literary Journal published online twice a year, featuring works of all types — fiction, memoirs, essays, poetry, songwriting etc. from Writing Center program participants, workshop presenters and Writers Guild members.
► WCP editors are currently finalizing guidelines for submissions to a proposed book of essays and articles about Pearl S. Buck and her life, literature, and legacy.
