Writers Hot Desks


The desks are back! A popular feature of Essex Writers House are our Writers’ Hot Desks, offering two free spaces for writers of all levels to find peaceful inspiration in our Attic Studio. These bookable, accessible hot desks are available through the month of April, with Estuary views and the park on your doorstep.

This year, the desks are named after two historical Essex figures whose stories continue to inspire new works by writers and artists based in Southend on Sea.

The desks are accessible via lift from our ground floor and there are bathrooms on all floors. Chalkwell Hall has a ramp at the front entrance.


Please note – we are restricting bookings to a maximum of two days per writer, to ensure that the opportunity is afforded to as many writers as possible!
