Fall Chat: Marc Eichen and The Writers’ Room of Boston (2:00)
Wednesday, October 6, 2021, 2:00 PM
Virtual; Registrants will receive the Zoom link prior to event date.
For our next fall chat, please join Marc Eichen and members of Beacon Hill Village for a virtual introduction to the Writers' Room of Boston. Members of the Room will do a couple of brief readings followed by a question and answer session in which we will discuss, not only the written pieces but the function and availability of the Room itself. All are welcome to join the conversation.
Established in 1988 to provide a space for emerging and established writers, the Writers' Room is one of the oldest urban writers retreats in the United States and offers a quiet haven in which to create written work of all genres. The physical space includes desks separated by partitions, a kitchen area, a bathroom, and a conference table in the lobby for socializing and sharing reading materials and ideas with other writers. The Room, however, is more than just the physical space - it's the community. The Room sponsors periodic readings featuring members' work and fundraising events, which are open to the public including a digital reading series, Readings from the Room.
The mission of the Room is to promote and support writers in all genres by providing an affordable, quiet, secure, and welcoming workspace in the heart of downtown Boston. The core mission also includes inclusivity and outreach to the regional literary community, while promoting broader public interest in writing and literature.
This virtual program is presented as part of Beacon Hill Village’s Seasonal Chat series. Registration required online in advance here or by calling Beacon Hill Village at 617-723-9713. Registrants will receive the Zoom invitation information in advance of the program. Free and open to the public.
