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 coworking, networking and career support to individual writers. Plus, dozens of local podcasters flourish in our audio studio.
Lastly, we also support the reading and podcast fan public with Pressing Matters, a free email and social feed on the 1,000+ literary events happening in RI every year.
