The Brooklyn Writers Space was founded by playwrights Scott Adkins and Erin Courtney in 2002. Inspired by the Writers Room in Manhattan, Erin and Scott have created a place that is free of distractions like, noisy coffee shops, cramped apartments, cluttered offices, and phones. The space is a dedicated place where writers are free to focus on the task of writing in a professional, respectful, and quiet environment that fosters literary success. Since opening, the Writers Space has served over 1500 writers who have published countless articles, books, dissertations, stage and screen plays, poems, etc.
In 2010, the Brooklyn Writers Space opened another quiet only space on Court Street to serve the writers of Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Red Hook and Boerum Hill. This space is a classic Carroll Gardens store front.
All spaces provide writers with a desk, a lamp and a chair on a first come first serve basis. Coffee is always on hand, as well as provide your own paper printing, wi-fi(but if you are trying to get away from the internet we can help you with that too), storage ($30 per quarter), and kitchenette lounge areas for socializing.
Each space is unique by location. The 1st Street location is near the Union Street R train or the 4th Ave G/F trains as well as close to the 3rd Street Citi-Bike station. 1st Street has a roof deck, is a five minute walk to the Whole Foods Market, is around the corner from Runner & Stone Bakery as well as Root Hill Cafe. The Court Street location is near the Bergen or Carroll Street F train, has plenty of books, a comfy reading area, is next door to Union Market and across the street from The Chocolate Room. All spaces are accessible 24/7.
