Friday Find: The Writers Loft

As a writer who spent half her childhood (ages 9-18) in New Jersey, I am happy to spotlight this piece of literary NJ: The Writers Loft, located in Montclair.

I found out about The Writers Loft, "where creative people come to work," from Lisa Romeo, who will be leading an essay-writing seminar there on December 10. (Lisa and I recently strengthened our bond as New Jersey writers when I attended a poetry reading she participated in at my hometown library. Such fun!)

If I were still living in ye olde suburban town, I'd definitely look into The Writers Loft. Perhaps those of you in the Garden State will wish to do the same.

Hi Erika,
I found your blog through Deonne's (Life on the Highwire) and I really enjoy it.

I linked to you.

Wow! Thank you. I love the Writers Loft, but I'm biased. I run the place. Our goal is to be a meaningful addition to the community and the community's writers, much like Writers Room and Paragraph in New York City. Lisa Romeo is fantastic, too.
