The Room to Write has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Wakefield.
Members of The Room to Write can utilize the Wakefield Club's space for writing each week on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 PM and our critique group meetings on the 3rd Thursday of each month. While our goal is to have our own space and make it available during business hours and evenings, we are grateful for the shared space while we work to raise the funds needed for permanent space. Come see the space, work in the space or stop by to ask questions and find out more!
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. If you are looking for more time to write in a space set aside for writers that isn't too far away from Wakefield, you may consider Follow Your Art Community Studios in Melrose, MA if space is your main motivation for membership. We support writers in every way, which includes supporting local organizations that are able to do what we are not yet able to.
$10/month – or - $100/year

Wednesdays: evening hours are 7:00 to 9:30pm held in Boys & Girls Club of Wakefield at 467 Main Street, Wakefield, MA.
As we grow our hours will grow. Members will be notified via email when hours fluctuate. If there is a day and a time that you need work space that is not listed above, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
