On March 31st, a fire ravaged our building. Thankfully no one was in the building or hurt, but our Lexington Writer's Room suite sustained heavy water and smoke damage. The fire burned the structure's second floor and roof and the owners have confirmed that it will take many months to repair. We'll have to find and set up another space. We're saddened and in shock, but also resolved and ready to do what's needed to re-open. Here are a few pictures of what was once our beautiful space. We're seeking donations to help us respond to this unexpected challenge. Thank you.
We're thrilled and honored! The Lexington Writer's Room has been awarded a grant by the Kentucky Arts Council (funding from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021). This grant will help the LWR recover and grow after 18 months of operation during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This is our nonprofit's second grant. Helping writers WRITE is a worthy and important mission!
