Thanks for visiting the website. Because of KY's corona virus response measures, the Lexington Writer's Room has pushed the pause button on our workspace. If you're a KY writer interested in becoming a member, please go ahead and fill out the inquiry form on the Become a Member page. We'd love to learn more about your work and get your inquiry processed and ready for our re-start.


If you're a potential donor/supporter, check out the Support Us page for ways you can help. As a small nonprofit organization, we love donations! We don't have employees, so all the funds we raise go directly toward operating costs that enable us to offer our writers subsidized workspaces and programming.


In the meantime, we're engaging with our members virtually and working on our upcoming Patreon program. Stay safe and well.

Check out this list of tips for coworking warriors like us. the Lexington Writer's Room is different, and special, but many of these apply. Just remember that it is totally fine to migrate over into the Salon and work if you need a change of seat. But wear your earphones if there are others in the space because conversations are encouraged in the Salon. It is a Salon, after all.

The Lexington Writer's Room was created because we know that it matters who we hang around with. But you might be wondering is working IN a coworking space is right for you. Do you think:

  • I could never write in a room with other people.

  • I like my home office.

  • I'll be distracted by others.

  • Their coffee won't be as good as mine.

All these points are valid and surely true for some of us, some of the time. And yet...and YET...we think you should give coworking a try because:

  • You will write more if you come to your coworking office regularly.

  • You'll get to know other writers and learn from them.

  • A coworking space can support your accountability goals. We dare you to sit in a coworking space for eight hours and fail to get some good writing done. Double dare you!

  • When you invest in your craft and treat it like a business, your work will reflect your professionalism and commitment. It will have more heft.

A coworking space can also provide you with the structure you need to build effective work habits. This is important because writing is both a passion and a job for serious writers like LWR members.
