Writer's Block

Writer’s Block is a community filled with writers who are always willing to share their work and learn from others. Residents will have the opportunity to enjoy Wesleyan’s writing events and host their own discussions about working with faculty and writing fellows. Our community is diverse in various writing disciplines including:

  • Tolkien-inspired fantasy
  • Poetry about living in a diaspora
  • Passionate reviews of Dante’s Inferno (a cleverly disguised fanfiction)
  • Your own writing!

All are welcome! We gather once a month to share our current, past, and future writings, whether on paper, on a digital document, or in our dreams. Programs at Writer’s Block include student readings and open mics. New writers will be linked to more experienced ones through dorm events and partnerships with student organizations and departments, such as promoting guest lectures.

Writer's Block boasts 2 lounges, a kitchen, a laundry facility and a convenient eating option with the restaurant WesWings housed on the ground floor.  The majority of the rooms are singles and some rooms have balconies.

Lead Paint Disclosure

Housing built before 1978 may contain lead-based paint. Lead from paint, paint chips, and dust can pose health hazards if not taken care of properly. Lead exposure is especially harmful to young children and pregnant women. Before renting pre-1978 housing, landlords must disclose the presence of known lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards in the dwelling. Tenants must also receive a Federally approved pamphlet on lead poisoning prevention. The pamphlet may be viewed at:  The University recognizes that any housing built prior to 1978 may contain lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards. By accepting your housing contract, you are affirming that you have reviewed the pamphlet Protect Your Family from Lead In Your Home.

All Wesleyan housing was built before 1978 with the exception of the following: Bennet Hall, Fauver Apartments, 19 Fountain Avenue, 20 Fountain Avenue, 25 Fountain Avenue, 231 Pine Street, and 14 Warren Street.
