Membership

TRtW Membership

The Room to Write has partnered up with Cedric's Studio Meeting & Workspace. Cedric's Studio is offering members of The Room to Write a discounted membership to use Cedric's workspace to write and create on a six-month trial basis. 

Members of The Room to Write can purchase Cedric's Megaplan membership for $25--more than 50% off of the standard price--which allows writers and illustrators to utilize Cedric's workspace at 59 Albion Street for 16 hours each month during business hours. Scroll down to become a member of The Room to Write for only $10/month or $100/year today! 

It makes all the difference to have a room to work in where you can put your head down and get in the zone. It also helps to have a second room available to connect with other writers or illustrators to critique work, discuss a project or share information.

Come see the space, work in the space or stop by to ask questions and find out more!

Membership Benefits

The Room to Write was organized out of the need for a local space in which to work and with the goal of providing a supportive community for writers and illustrators to draw inspiration from, to gather information through and to be motivated by. In addition to the intangible benefits, there are tangible benefits:

o   Local and reliable space

o   Quarterly Meet & Greets

o   Monthly Critique Group

o   WCAT Membership (bronze) 


Initially our membership fees went toward the costs associated with becoming a tax-exempt non-profit. We are happy to report that we were declared an official 501(c)3 nonprofit by the IRS in the spring of 2018 and completed the final paperwork (and paid more fees) required to solicit donations in the fall of 2018. Read more about our journey to tax exempt status here. 

Thank you to all who have been members from the beginning! Additionally, membership fees will offset costs associated with events, outreach efforts, marketing materials, and business administrative costs as well as working to secure a more permanent location.
