The Toronto Writers’ Centre is a 800-square-foot, air-conditioned writing haven, divided into two quiet rooms, lounge & kitchen, and boardroom.
The North & South Quiet Rooms each have 7 workspaces, each of which contains a desk, chair, lamp and electrical outlets—the perfect distraction-free writing area. All mobile phone sounds must be switched off. Text messages are allowed but no voice calls. You’re welcome to use other music sources provided that other writers cannot hear them. Work spaces cannot be reserved and are available on a first come, first served basis. The quiet rooms are well stocked with dictionaries, thesauruses and style manuals.
Lounge & Kitchen
Clear your mind and relax in our warm, inviting lounge while you print off your work from our laser printer. Browse through our selection of newspapers and magazines, or pour a coffee or tea and chat with other writers.
Store your lunch or snacks in the refrigerator or heat them up in our microwave or toaster. Mugs, dishes and cutlery are also available — but please clean and dry them after use! Large recycle bins are also available for your rough drafts.
Lockers are also located in the kitchen. They are currently offered on a first come, first serve basis. They are big enough for those writers wishing to leave their materials on-site, but smaller than a large dog. Sorry, TWC cannot accept responsibility for lost or stolen items.
Need a place to conduct interviews, client meetings or collaborate with other writers? TWC members may use our spacious board-room with its three white-boards, when it has not been rented out. Here you can “talk story” to your heart’s content.
