The Creative House at 362 North Upper Street provides offices for four of Transylvania's distinguished writers: Martha Gehringer, instructor in writing, rhetoric, and communication; Maurice Manning, Transylvania writer-in-residence and professor of English; Tim Soulis, Lucille C. Little professor of theater; and Richard Taylor, Kenan visiting writer.
A retrofitted personal residence, the building's spaces are quirky and close-knit—the perfect environment for fostering offbeat ideas, creative collaboration, and original thought. Constructing workable office space was not quite as straightforward as it originally looked. As Soulis put it, "We have been creative in addressing some of the traditional expectations about office spaces with somewhat non-traditional actualizations."

Although it may feel a bit presumptuous to walk into what appears to be someone’s private living quarters, visitors are always welcome and no appointments are necessary.
