“Writing at a Writer’s House”

Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Good Earth, Pearl S. Buck envisioned a world where all people, especially children, could reach their dreams. The organization that bears her name, Pearl S. Buck International provides opportunities to explore and appreciate other cultures, to build better lives for children around the globe, and to promote the legacy of our founder by preserving and interpreting her National Historic Landmark home. The legacy of Pearl S. Buck unites nations, societies, communities, and individuals with an appreciation for cultural differences and a commitment to service.

As volunteers at the Pearl S. Buck National Historic Landmark House, we strive to preserve and promote Ms. Buck’s extraordinary legacy through public tours and community programs, such as our Writing Center’s “Writing at a Writer’s House” on the beautiful estate grounds. We offer ongoing educational writing programs — conferences, workshops, yearlong novel and memoir classes, guest speakers, monthly Writers Guild meetings, book tours, and open book discussions on the works of Pearl S. Buck. Our Writers Guild consists of volunteers — working in the spirit of Pearl S. Buck and Richard Walsh, her editor, publisher, and second husband — to enable, encourage, and nurture ideas for writers developing their craft.

Our Pearl S. Buck Online Literary Journal — featuring fiction, poetry, essay, and memoir contributions from our program participants — debuted with our Spring 2016 issue. To help our writers self-publish books, we launched the Pearl S. Buck Writing Center Press (WCP) this year.
