During the pandemic, WriterHouse, like many nonprofits, endured significant financial challenges. To reduce costs and move toward greater sustainability, we moved and downsized our facility from three classrooms to one classroom. Because our new space is extremely limited compared to our old space, we are seeking partnerships with other like-minded nonprofits that can accommodate some of our writing groups and writers seeking quiet writing space. Please check back with us periodically on the status of our search for additional writing and group meeting space.
