We’re happy to announce an exciting new opportunity for the Burlington Writers Workshop: We’re moving to Church Street!
This morning, Danielle and I signed a lease for the BWW on 22 Church Street. It’s a beautiful space with wood floors, enormous windows facing Church Street, a kitchenette, and (unlike our current space) walls up to the ceiling. We’ll be on the third floor. We took some photos this morning, so take a look!
We wanted a place that would inspire you and attract new writers. One of our missions is to bring attention to the writers who publish in THE BEST OF THE BURLINGTON WRITERS WORKSHOP, and a place on Church Street is perhaps the best possible choice if we want to build awareness of who we are and what we do.
We want to maintain accessibility for all people of all physical abilities, so it’s likely that we’ll hold regular workshops at other locations, too. We’ll be developing a system for when/where we’ll have these in the coming months.
The BWW’s financial advisory committee assisted in the search for the right new location for us, and they should be commended for their efforts.
You will likely have questions about this. How much does the new space cost? What are the terms of the lease? Why do this now, when we’re changing leadership? We can say that the cost of this space is greater than the cost of our current space, so our costs have risen. We can still meet expenses, especially with your help. We want to answer your questions in person or by email, so please do consider stopping by Studio 266 this Sunday for a forum on all the changes we’re seeing.
And now, with the big news out of the way, here are this week’s opportunities and announcements. Continue reading
