Welcome to the Bowers House

Nestled in the historical district of a sleepy north Georgia town, The Bowers House Writers Retreat and Literary Center affords visiting writers a rare commodity — the tranquility and space to work and create.


There is a lot to celebrate at The Bowers House as the IRS has finally approved our 501c.3 status! This is a great opportunity to bring an abundance of support and creativity to the house.

The gorgeous, secluded Bowers House offers serious writers a unique and economical retreat for one or more weeks, and it offers writing groups a marvelous venue for a reading, workshop, or other literary activity. As a bonus, the nearby cultural mecca of Athens, Georgia, is readily available day and night to any Bowers House visitors who might want to reward themselves for some work or project well done.
