AIR for Writers: Our Writers’ Rooms

Tune out the world and write. The Writers’ Room offers writers a quiet, comfortable, communal space to write, think and create without distractions.

Our Writers in Residence program is an opportunity for writers to develop their craft, work toward a goal, and build supportive relationships with fellow writers. We offer two FYACS Writer in Residence options:

  • Writers’ Room: $60/month for 15 writers in communal workspace
  • Writers’ Studio: share one of our other studio spaces with writers or visual artists with your own private desk (monthly cost varies; see the studios).

Writers in Residence are part of the FYACS community and contribute to the culture and success of FYACS. Find out more below. To view available spaces please email  info@fyamelrose.org 

Dedicated writing space

Tucked away on the second floor of FYACS, the Writers’ Room will feature a large table and chairs and bookshelves for members to create a shared library. Looking for more privacy? The Writers’ Studio on the top floor of FYACS, offers four private desks.

Build your network

The Room and Studio are designated quiet spaces for writers to work on their projects. However, writers  build community by joining critique groups, planning readings and social events, or by simply taking a break together downstairs in one of our communal spaces.

Develop your skills

We are committed to including and supporting both emerging and published writers in our community. Applicants for our Writers demonstrate a serious intent when applying to become a Writer in Residence.
