Literary Arts

Interested in pursuing the Literary Arts? Eureka Springs, Arkansas is home to two excellent organizations supporting the art and craft of writing – The Writer’s Colony at Dairy Hollow (residency program plus regular workshops and events open to the public) and Village Writing School (a literary community supporting both beginning and established writers).

And head uptown for our favorite downtown establishment: BREWS – for literary adventure and word play evenings such as Open Mic, Trivia Night, and The Eureka Human Experience. BREWS serves local craft beer, locally roasted Arsaga’s coffee, wine and small fare in a newly expanded venue in the heart of the arts district…a perfect place for writers and artists to hang!
