The 24-hour Room began in the isolation of the pandemic as a balm for lonely writers bereft of their coffee shops, writers rooms and artists colonies. An incubator for stories and a safe harbor for storytellers, The 24-Hour Room offers fellowship, structure, solutions, motivation, accountability and intellectual sustenance. Its central feature, a silent, communal virtual writing space known as the Studio, is completely free. Other offerings of The 24-Hour Room include a growing library of Craft essays and prompts, a manuscript swap board, the Moby-Dick Slow Marathon, our 24/7 Zoom Lounge, open mics and bulletin boards.

We are not currently a 501(c)3 organization, but we make the site and its live programs available to all at no cost. You may be able to deduct contributions from your taxes as a writing expense.


Inspired by NPR and the Met, we have adopted a pay-what-you-wish Sustaining Membership system. The 24-Hour Room is funded entirely by voluntary donations, which enable us to make the space free to all, regardless of their resources. The 24-Hour Room encourages regular users who can afford to do so to become Sustaining Members at any level of support that fits their budget. We are grateful for every dollar!


Support in any amount gratefully accepted.
