The Work Center is internationally known for our acclaimed Fellowship program granting seven-month residencies to 20 emerging writers and artists, as well as the open enrollment Summer Workshop Program, an online writing program 24PearlStreet, and an extensive series of year-round cultural events and exhibitions.

Since our founding in 1968, the Work Center has hosted more than 1,000 Fellows. Today, upwards of 1,500 artists and writers from around the world annually apply for 20 Fellowship residencies.
