East Bay Writers’ Room
Every Tuesday · 10am–2pm
The East Bay Writers’ Room is open to all Bay Area artists who want a quiet, concentrated space to write from 10am–2pm every Tuesday. Artists must sign up in advance to reserve their space. Capacity is limited to 10 people per week.
This is a dedicated silent space for writing. In order to maintain concentration, writers can only enter the building from 9:45am–10am and 11:45am–noon, when a staff member will stand at the door to let artists in.
The East Bay Writers’ Room came out of a series of salons for local artists that aimed to open a dialogue about what kind of support the local theatre community desired. Space and time were the two loudest requests. Thanks to those conversations, The Ground Floor decided to dedicate a room at Berkeley Rep’s Harrison Street campus for playwrights to write amongst their peers.
Join our mailing list and receive an email at the top of every month to remind you to sign up for the coming month’s sessions, as well as notifications of public presentations and more.
The Ground Floor is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts/ArtWorks, Time Warner Foundation Inc., the Tournesol Project, Bank of America, Michael & Sue Steinberg, and individual supporters of Berkeley Rep’s Create Campaign.
