Beautifully Busy & A Note on the Weather!


February is love month and we’re not holding back offering an erotic writing workshop and a love poetry class! We hope you’re inspired to spread you love to the page!

January despite the wild weather and back-to-school busy-ness, we kept the space busy as well! The crew from Scribes & Songsters stopped by to film three interviews for their delightful show! Check out their facebook and social media because Gertrude’s Writing Room will also be on one of their episodes! Find out about how owner Vanessa Shields started dreaming about the special place that is Gertrude’s Writing Room! Thanks Scribes & Songsters!

The Monsters, Aliens, Short Stories & Friends workshop was a massive hit! We’re planning another workshop led by Ben and Christian! Stay tuned!

Once again, our Laughter Yoga & Writing Workshop is SOLD OUT! Thank you so much everyone for registering! We will continue to offer this wonderful workshop so long as you keep giving us love for it!

And that NOTE ABOUT THE WEATHER! If you are registered for a class or workshop and it is cancelled, you will receive a phone call from Vanessa Shields to let you know. Otherwise, the class/workshop will go on as scheduled. Please allow extra travel time for safety!

Thanks for all you love, writers! See you soon!
