"The most important way my jobs have helped me creatively is by
providing stability and structure. And by that I mean a steady
paycheck, a place to go each day, and people to interact with, as well
as a respite from the demand to be creative. I've experimented with a

"As a community of writers, The Writers' Room has produced influential
work on a local, national, and international level. No matter what their
reasons for joining--quiet time, intellectual community, even air
conditioning--the Room's members form a literary community in a single
place....[Audrey Beth Stein's] novel, which began as a short story called
