Dupps Den Writers’ Suite Donations

One of our 20th Anniversary goals is to update each of our eight writing suites. Three of them, Spring Garden, Peach Blossom, and Muse 4 have been completed and are now the Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, and Diana Rivers suites. Four more have been funded and will soon be updated. The final suite, Dupps Den, will become the Dupps Den Writers’ Suite. It will be a Writers’ Colony community effort, and an opportunity for the family of alumni writers to contribute to the 20th Anniversary suite updates in a lasting, visible way. Donors will be recognized with a plaque posted outside the door of the Dupp’s Den Writers’ Suite. 

Dupps Den was originally designed for musicians and artists however it goes largely unused in that capacity. We plan to make it more conducive to writing. Colony board member and artist/designer, Teresa DeVito, has agreed to contribute the design and labor for the refresh.  WCDH alumna, author, and writing coach Nikki Hanna has provided some fantastic input and generously funded the bulk of Teresa’s wish list of items for the new suite.
