Join us

Why join us?

Because writing doesn’t have to be a lonely, frustrating experience: all that ‘room of your own’ stuff is grossly overrated. Something magical happens when writers work quietly together in the same space to achieve their individual goals. Procrastination isn’t possible, ideas and words start to flow and … we write.

Why write alone?

So banish those Killer Ps and try it. Come out of your sheds and garrets and cupboards-under-the-stairs. Bring whatever it is you are struggling to write on your own to The Write Place, and prepare to be amazed at the difference it makes to your word count when you write with other writers.

Only £5 for a trial session ~ refundable if you become a full member.

For once, you CAN afford to put your writing first because we are completely not-for-profit and aim to keep our fees as low as possible. We’re here to help you to write ~ so no more excuses!

Zoom membership

£15 a month for Zoom members

If you’re unlucky enough not to live near Frome, if stairs are a problem (TWP is on the top floor), or perhaps it’s difficult to get out because you’re caring for someone at home, then Zoom with us instead.

Zoom members can write online with whoever is in The Write Place studios, 7 days a week ~ even if it’s only for an hour while the baby sleeps. And you can Zoom into our monthly WriteDay for free.


Visitors are always welcome on a pay-as-you-go basis whenever desks are available, but you do need to book in advance:

  • £5 for up to 4 hours
  • £10 a day

What people say

The Write Place needs to be celebrated – until you’ve been you have no idea how unique this beautiful, caring haven is. Some writers are new, some published, many don’t care either way as they are writing for themselves. Everyone’s work and writing time is respected. You would be hard-pressed to find a similar place anywhere.


TWP has a magical formula that just works for me. Silence filled with the tapping of keyboards and scratching of pen on paper, space and freedom to think, surrounded by other writers.
