Writers often toil in solitude. Here’s a place we can gather, whether to write silently in the Studio or talk about books and writing in the Lounge. The 24-Hour Room is a free virtual writers space offering fellowship, structure, solutions, motivation and intellectual sustenance.

An open invitation from founder Elizabeth Gaffney :

The 24-Hour Room is a growing community of writers that launched on January 20, 2021. I created it out of a combination of desperation, weariness from ten months of isolation, and hope. Writers often toil in solitude, but they also gather β€” at readings, classes, writers rooms, colonies β€” an act we’ve not been able to engage in since last winter. Our need for community is greater than ever in this period of turmoil, pandemic and lockdown.

The 24-Hour Room is a place writers can come together without masks, whether to write silently in the Studio or talk about books and writing in the Lounge, our our-loud space. It offers fellowship, structure, solutions, motivation, and intellectual sustenance to writers at all levels. You might use it as an accountability group, but there are no external obligations, only opportunities. Show up when you want. Feel free to join gathering in the Lounge and share on the bulletin boards β€”or not to.
