About Us

A place where writers write.

The Lexington Writer's Room was established as a 501(c)3 organization in February 2020. Our funding sources enable us to offer local, active writers (and visitors) affordable, collaborative, and supportive workspaces so they can produce more work and expand their readerships and commercial successes.
