Welcome wordsmiths!

The Write Place is a creative haven in the heart of Frome in Somerset where writers can escape isolation, stop procrastinating, and write together in companionable silence.

Besides a Quiet Zone for writing (mobile-free), there’s a separate Chat Room for eating, reading, ranting about writing, or simply relaxing in the shiatsu massage chair.

Run by writers for writers

Our wonderful studios under the eaves of Frome’s vibrant Black Swan Arts are open to members 9-5, seven days a week. Here you’ll find everything a writer needs to Get it Done:

  • Time to really focus on your work
  • Space to write without distractions
  • Support from other writers
  • Comfortable writing chairs

Join us in person or on Zoom

We welcome wordsmiths in every genre, whatever your level of experience, whether you’re writing for yourself, publication, university or work. If it’s difficult to be here in person, join us on Zoom instead.

We are still Covid-careful
