What is happening in The Room?
Adult writers and illustrators of all genres and levels are invited to meet up at the big, yellow house—home of Follow Your Art Community Studios—to talk writing and art over a cup of tea or coffee and something sweet. Come enjoy a casual night in a wonderful space with other creative people!
Ally Houghton Photography is supporting TRtW by donating time and talent to provide professional, affordable headshots for local writers and artists. The cost is a $30 donation to The Room to Write.($20 with a 5/12/22 book purchase from Whitelam Books)Whitelam Books is providing our "studio" space.
Thanks to all who attended. It was a great night!
With the weather turning colder and safety still a priority, we will take things day by day to see when we can resume our quarterly Meet & Greets for adult writers and illustrators, as well as other programs and events.
