Toronto Writers' Centre is . . .
a godsend. No laundry, no children, no phones,
just silence and the blank page. It’s been like
rediscovering writing all over again.
— Nino Ricci
an enormous relief
—it's no small thing to have a place to just sit and write
among supportive, like-minded members.
— Ania Szado
a great place to settle down and get to work
—quiet, comfortable, and available 24 hours a day. I've
written three novels there, and I'm about to start a fourth.
— Giles Blunt
a community, a refuge, an oasis and a crash pad.
I'd never write a book anywhere else.
— Rich Poplak
a great boon. I've done some of my best work there quickly,
because there are no domestic or social distractions.
It's the place to get serious about writing.
— Karen Connelly
a perfect space
—soundproofed, gently lit and high speed connected.
— Ellen Vanstone
