The old Melbourne Gaol (jail) is now taking writers.
It’s a place to work right in the CBD.
Yes, you have to pay, and not in the way of you doing the crime and paying the fine. Instead, it will be your office!
“The National Trust Cells for Writers is a way of inspiring and engaging with the Victorian writing community through our rich built, natural and cultural heritage. The project will contribute to the vibrant artistic community of Melbourne by offering spaces to writers in which to work uninterrupted on their manuscripts. Writers will be housed in a cell with just a chair, table and their imagination. – See more at: http://writersvictoria.org.au/help-for-writers/writers-studios/cells-for-writers/about-cells-for-writers#sthash.CpVTFGa9.dpuf”
