The Writers' Room of Boston (WROB) is a nonprofit organization that has been dedicated to supporting the creation of new literature for over 25 years by providing a secure, affordable work space and an engaged community to established and emerging writers in Boston.
Every year, The Writers’ Room of Boston supports four emerging local writers who need financial support to secure a quiet place to develop their work. Fellowship recipients receive full membership to The Writers’ Room for 12 months (February through January) at no cost. Members enjoy 24-hour access to a beautiful light-filled work space in downtown Boston and the opportunity to be part of an engaged community of serious writers.
Awards for the Emerging Writer Fellowship Program are based upon the quality of a submitted writing sample, a project description, a CV or resume, and a statement of need. The Fellowships are open to writers working in any genre or form. Fellows must be committed to using the Room on a regular basis throughout the 12-month period.
For more information about the WROB Emerging Writer Fellowship Program, or to learn how you can become a member, please visit our website.
Applications for Fellowships are due on December 31, 2014. Applications for regular membership are open all year.
