Out of Joint launches Writers Room – free writing space for playwrights

Out of Joint, the touring theatre company best known for new writing, is offering playwrights free writing space at their base in North London.

As Artistic Director Kate Wasserberg puts it: “Writing is tough. It can be difficult to find a quiet space, it can be lonely, it can be hard to prioritise, and having to buy a coffee every hour to work in a café can make that an expensive option. And we love writers. So we’ve cleared out our corner office and made it into a Writers Room, and we’re inviting writers who are looking for a quiet but friendly space in which to focus to come and work here.”

Out of Joint is based near Finsbury Park in North London. The Writers Room is equipped with a desk and chair, a rug and Wi-Fi, and has natural light. There’ll be free tea and coffee, and writers will be welcome to chat through their work with the Out of Joint team.

The company’s cats, Andrea and Dunbar, will also be on hand for a cuddle.

The Writers Room is available to one writer at a time, with slots from 5 February 2018. Each writer book up to three weeks of use, which need not be continuous.


Applicants should email [email protected], putting “Writers Room” in the subject. Tell us a bit about yourself and what you are working on and we’ll take it from there.
