About Us

Carnegie Center LogoThe Red Door Writers Blog is owned and operated under the auspices of the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning in Lexington, Kentucky. It was created to connect the local literary communities as well as serve as a resource for writers and aspiring authors.

The Kentucky Literary Calendar is a listing of all literary events in the Bluegrass. All events are submitted by the organizers of the event. If you have an event you would like to submit, please send it by going to the calendar page and clicking the green “+Post Your Event” button.

The Kentucky Literary Newsletter is a curated selection of the month’s most prominent events, as well as lesser known events we’d like to highlight. To subscribe to the KY Literary Newsletter, please click here and fill out the form.

The Carnegie Center’s mission is to empower people to explore and express their voices through imaginative learning and the literary arts. Founded in 1992, the Carnegie Center uses the old Lexington Public Library building, which opened in 1905 thanks to contributions from Andrew Carnegie. The building is also home to BCTC’s Operation Read.
