The Writers’ Room of Boston, Inc. (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 awards fellowships to four emerging local writers who lack sufficient funds to secure a quiet place to develop their work. Fellowship recipients receive full membership to The Writers’ Room for 12 months (March through February) at no cost. Fellows receive a reduced rate for membership for another 12 months following the fellowship period. All fellows and members enjoy 24-hour access to a T-accessible light-filled work space in the Financial District of downtown Boston and the opportunity to be part of an encouraging community of serious writers.
Awards for the Emerging Writers Fellowship Program are based on 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, to writing a minimum of 6 blog posts for our website, and to assisting with WROB readings and events.
