What is happening in The Room?

Writers and Illustrators Meet & Greet: Monday, December 18th

Join us for a festive time at Harrington's Pub in Wakefield, MA on Monday, December 18th for some holiday cheer with your fellow writers and illustrators. Writers and illustrators of all genres and abilities are encouraged to get festive with us starting at 6:30 pm in Harrington's Pub located at 17 Water Street, Wakefield, Ma.

Connect with other local writers and illustrators while you enjoy coffee, tea and something sweet or help yourself to a spirit at the bar. This is a festive event with a friendly group of people for writers and illustrators at all levels and all genres to meet each other.

If you have a favorite holiday-themed poem, paragraph or illustration feel free to bring it along to share but do not feel obligated. What is most important is to enjoy being in the company of other artists and to get to know each other.

This Meet & Greet is sponsored by The Room to Write and located in space being generously provided by Harrington's Pub with thanks to local artist
