Located in downtown Detroit on Washington Boulevard, the Detroit Writing Room is a new co-working space that will feature one-on-one instruction with award-winning writers, workshops, open mic nights, book talks and more.

The writing room was started by SEEN Magazine editor Stephanie Steinberg and P.R. professional Jake Serwer, who also happen to be husband and wife. The idea for the writing room began taking shape when Steinberg was working as a features reporter for the Detroit News. When she spoke with entrepreneurs around the city, many of them were seeking help with social media, writing professional bios and business plans. 

As a journalist, I couldn’t really help them,” says Steinberg. “But, I thought, ‘What if there was a place for them to go and get help with all these writing needs?’” 

The Detroit Writing Room officially opens Monday, June 3rd. There will also be an open house on Saturday, June 15th. Click here for more info.
