HOURLY RATES


Gertrude’s Writing Room is a gathering place for writers. If you are interested in writing in a creative, safe space that is fully accessible with bathrooms and a kitchen, writing tables and desks, and comfy reading chairs and a sofa – then this is your writing sanctuary.

Gertrude’s Writing Room is a gathering place for writers. It exists for writers like you to have a creative space in which to write, read, play, create and retreat. The writing retreat comes in many variations. We believe it is essential for writers to give themselves the gift of time and space in which to retreat from their necessary ‘normal’ so to enhance their creative writing lives.

To retreat is to withdrawal, but it is also to re-enter. For the sake of your words, your stories, your expression, retreating into your writing is a powerful gift that not only enhances your skills, but excites your muse, heightens your creative awareness, expands your imagination, and harnesses your confidence so you can stand passionate and strong in the mastery of your writing life.
