How does the writing space work, anyway?

Any WriterHouse member may use the writing space (except for the Reserved Writing Room) during Open Hours, when a volunteer is on duty (schedule on the website). Open Hours access is included in the $50 annual membership. Any member who would like to use the writing space at times other than Open Hours may apply for Full Time Access.

What if I want to use the writing space but I can't come during Open Hours?

You may apply for Full Time Access. You must be a WriterHouse member in good standing to apply. If accepted, upon payment of an additional fee, you will be given an electronic door code you may use to enter the space at any time.

What is the procedure for applying for Full Time Access?

First, you must be a WriterHouse member, with an unexpired membership. Then you submit the application for Full Time Access. If your application is accepted, we will send you our Full Time Access agreement for your signature and you will return a signed copy with your payment for the first month or quarter, depending upon the term you choose. When we receive your signed agreement and payment, we will email you an electronic door code. Please don’t submit payment with the application, but wait for us to process your application and send you the agreement. Please allow two weeks for the processing of your application.

What is the cost of Full Time Access?
