VISIT US

The Center for New Words is located at 7 Temple Street in Central Square in Cambridge -- one of Cambridge's best spots for coffee shops, restaurants, and bookstores and culture.

All of our events are wheelchair accessible.

Below, we have provided directions to CNW by public transportation and by car. If those directions don't answer your questions, please give us a call.
