The Writers’ Room of Boston, Inc. (WROB) is a nonprofit organization that has been dedicated to supporting the creation of new literature for nearly 30 years by providing a secure, affordable work space to serious writers living in the greater Boston area.
Every year The Writers’ Room of Boston awards fellowships to four emerging local writers of limited means. Fellowship recipients receive full membership to The Writers’ Room for 12 months (March through February) at no cost. Fellows also 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 a supportive and diverse community of writers.
Awards for the WROB 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.
