Introducing The Writers’ Room
The Writers’ Room is a space dedicated to the development of writers in Thanet. Housed at Marine Studios in Margate, the Writers’ Room provides a hub for writers of all backgrounds and means. It’s a space designed to bring together writers and members of the wider creative community, supporting the local literary ecosystem to grow alongside Margate’s vibrant art scene.
A collaboration born in Marine Studios
Making space for writers of all means and backgrounds
The Writers’ Room includes subsidised desks for low-income writers who may not otherwise be able to access a regular work space. Offering an antidote to the often isolating experience of being a writer, the Writer’s Room is a welcoming hub where writers can be part of a community while having space to focus on their work.
Going beyond co-working
More than a desk in a co-working space, the Writers’ Room offers a poetry library, regular development and support programming, including prose and poetry critique groups. Writers have the opportunity to attend talks by and network with industry professionals as part of the monthly Marine Studio’s First Fridays. They also have access to bookable meeting rooms and peer support.
