The Writing Room

Hello Writer…

Struggling to find writing time to keep that project moving forward?

Your life is crazy busy – I get it – so let me help you with that.

The Writing Room is a subscription-based writing community for writers who want to stay motivated and nail their writing goals. 

We get together every Tuesday 7pm via Zoom and we write! 

Here’s an idea of what you can achieve in a month.

  • Week 1 – Clarity on where you want your project to be by the end of the year.
  • Week 1 – Nail your first 600 words
  • Week 2 – Write your next 800 words
  • Week 3 – Smash out your next 1000 words
  • Week 4 – Pat yourself on the back for finishing another 1000 words

And just like that, your project has grown by nearly 3500 words – not bad for 1 weekly writing session.

(Like to mark progress in pages? Me too. You can expect to add another 10 + pages every month depending on what you write.)

Super-useful! I moved the narrative further and fleshed out some of the detail. I need a bit of help finding motivation to write outside work given that I sit at a screen all day long.Atakohu Middleton

As a Writing Room member you get access to our weekly online writing session, our private Facebook group and our monthly coffee & catch up.

There’s no sharing – we are there to write AND if it’s not for you, you can easily unsubscribe.

Was great to have some dedicated time to focus on writing and be around other writers.” Andrea Kenrick

So who belongs to The Writing Room?

All kinds of writers – we currently have members working on novels, flash fiction, short stories, screenplays, blogs, creative non-fiction, memoir and plays.

“Writing is generally lonely but it was encouraging to see others plugging away on their novels, kids’ books or scripts. Time flew and before I knew it, I’d cranked out 873 words.”Yvonne Milroy

Members love what belonging to this writerly group does for their motivation and productivity. Apparently blocking out regular, writing time works!  (See more testimonials below.)

“It was so great to meet people who are just like me -want to get their damn stories out, but struggle for time!” Susy Egneus

“Writing Room is always A+++. Irrespective of how brain dead I might be by 7pm, you all inspire me to haul something creative out of my brain. I am always amazed by what I have to show for that two hours every Tuesday.” Robyn Welsh

“Thanks, it was great, I felt really inspired!”Rachel Hughes

“A weekly write-in is so good to keep the motivation going and build a good sense of belonging to a positive group! I always feel positive and encouraged after a session.”Jill Bradley

“I loved the session it actually gave me time to work (and I will finish) on one of the many half-baked ideas I have lying about the place.” Simone McGregor

Can’t make every single session?  No problem – it’s up to you how often you attend.

How much does it cost?

It costs less than two coffees a week – less if you choose a 3 or 6 monthly subscription.

How Does The Writing Room Work?

We get together on Zoom…

  • We do a fun, creative warm-up prompt to get you all into a creative headspace aka the zone.
  • We share our writing goal for the evening and then we settle in to write for a couple of hours…
  • No sharing or critiquing – just focused writing time.
