A living room and workspace for readers, writers and creatives right in the heart of Margate.
Opening August 2019…
With its own resident writer and the Margate Bookie lit fest crew coming and going, Margate Bookshop Writers’ Room is a space for you to meet, read and write.
At 2 Market Square, above the bookshop, we invite visiting and local writers and creatives to make themselves at home. Do your printing and charge your devices, pick up a book, grab a coffee and settle in.
We’ll have a (small but growing) poetry library, poetry magazines and alternative news journals for you to browse. Open 10am to 6pm Tuesdays to Fridays.
Does it cost?
Day passes to the Writers’ Room are £5 including a hot drink. Weekly passes are £12 (that’s just £3/day, drinks not included). We won’t turn away impoverished writers - just have a quiet word at the counter and the visit’s on us.
Events, workshops, meetings
Free to good causes for workshops and meetings on Mondays and with affordable hire evenings and weekends, the Writers’ Room is ideal for small groups and gatherings. Use our booking form to reserve the space.
