Over 300 local writers and podcasters are members of What Cheer Club
Writing, illustration and podcasting are often solitary and less-than-lucrative crafts. Yet, the literary arts, podcasts and journalism are critical for our culture and understanding of the world. As a 'Creative Capital', Providence should be a place for the content arts to flourish.
Founded in 2018, the Club serves as a central, umbrella organization supporting and providing space to many of our state's writing-related nonprofits, as well as providing networking and career support to individual writers.
We also support the reading and podcast fan public with LitRI, a free email and social feed on the 1,000+ literary events happening in RI every year.
What Cheer Writers Club's physical location at 160 Westminster Street is currently closed. No coworking, podcasting, or space rental will be available until further notice.
However, it is still our mission to provide our Members with community, connection and creative space. So the Club has launched a virtual community to keep our Members connected to each other and to the Club.
We will continue to host our events virtually, as well as provide access to virtual Zoom meetings for those who need it.
If you would like to join the Club during this time and surround yourself with a creative community, you can do so here.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
