All the different rooms of the house are related to the practice and art of writing and appeal to the experience of producing texts. It has all the implements, devices (quills and ink bottles, pens, typewriters, computers), picture boards and photographs to inspire and support writing. Casa da Escrita also has an accommodation area that periodically lodges relevant writers of creative literature (mainly foreigners) who take part in activities of the House and add to and improve the living archive of this cultural space with the texts they create or engender. But writing doesn?t live in the house alone, all the nooks and resources of the garden relate to writing and to those who wish to read, think, talk and write (both using traditional and computer resources). The production of texts sometimes happens through the presence and testimony of guest writers, or during commentaries in watching films (documentary or fiction).
Casa da Escrita also provides divers writing workshops and has organized diverse events in partnership with Associação Portuguesa de Escritores (Portuguese Writers? Association) and Plano Nacional de Leitura (National Reading Plan). Casa da Escrita is now involved in a project which aims to enhance the beauty of ?creative writing? and the dignity of ?functional writing?.
