About

The Mission:

To provide those who want to write, love to write, and need to write with a quiet, communal and supportive space within which they are able to write.

The Board:

The Room to Write is governed by a Board of Directors who care deeply for the mission and the community of writers and illustrators they work to serve.

The Room

The Room to Write was organized out of the need for a local space in which writers and illustrators can work creatively and with the goal of providing a supportive community from which individuals can draw inspiration, develop professionally and stay motivated. Artists will have the opportunity to create individually but not in isolation.

In the current location the Boys & Girls Club of Wakefield is sharing with TRtW the initial focus is on space that offers evening hours for members to work their craft as well as meet with other writers and illustrators for purposes of critiquing work and participating in professional development opportunities. 

There is one room designated as "quiet" and one room designated as "not-so-quiet" in which to meet. Click on the following links to find out more about TRtW Membership and TRtW Hours.

To Write

Writing is and should be messy. It is ok to write outside of the box; the box that is your home, school, or physical workplace. This can also be the box which is the often stiff and other times stifling expectation of what writing should look like. The vision is for you and your thoughts to work among other artists who will lend you as much or as little support as you prefer.

Let's write on our own but not in isolation, with the opportunity for collaboration and the advantage of a little room to write.
