Welcome to the Lit House!
We are one of the cultural hubs of the campus. We offer literary programming across disciplines, spaces to study and to hold class, professional mentorship and guidance for students, and training in new and antique printing technologies. Our job is to help students grow as artists and to envision the lives they can have as writers, editors, and publishers, once they graduate from Washington College.
