Goat Hill is the Providence meeting place of writers Hester Kaplan, Ann Hood, and Taylor Polites. We produce a wide range of literary events, offer writing workshops and one-on-one mentoring. Recent events have included: “Food Stars” with Ruth Reichl and Michael Ruhlman; “Thrillers” with Laura Lippman and Alison Gaylin; “The Art of the Memoir” with Dani Shapiro and Andre Dubus III; Agent Speed-Dating; and Workshop-Palooza!

 Goat Hill is committed to supporting writers and readers of all ages in Rhode Island’s vibrant literary life through innovative programming and community involvement.

Goat Hill is proud to partner with School One on Write Rhode Island! a state-wide writing competition for students in grades 8 – 12. In 2016 – 2017, Write Rhode Island! partnered with libraries, schools, and community organizations to give free writing workshops to students across the state, and produced an anthology of the winning stories.
