About One Lit Place

Community Resources & Writers Lounge at One Lit Place onelitplace.com

One Lit Place is a full-service writers’ center that provides writing courses & seminars, individual writer services, and the “Writers Lounge” where writers can meet, chat and share ideas in a secure online environment.

Founded in 2016, One Lit Place gives writers a fully-realized literary environment and writing community where writers get help, collaborate, learn and exchange ideas all under one virtual roof.

  • Writer services such as editing, coaching, and mentorship help creative, academic and business writers at every stage of their work- from inception through publication and beyond.
  • Creative Writing and General Writing Courses are offered both online and in real time, making them an excellent way for writers to grow, share their work, and engage in a community of peers as they build their skills and portfolios. Seminars address a variety of needs from website building and content to issues of writing craft, to business writing tips.
  • As you would find in the lounge of a bricks and mortar writing program, the Writers Lounge at One Lit Place is a private gathering space where writers talk about their work, the writing world, get help and guidance, and co-work via live chat and video conferencing. Also free and available to everyone are our Community Resources, where we offer continually updated resources,educational materials, and writing prompts.


Everything a writer needs can be found at One Lit Place: education, assistance, and connection with working writers around the world. Writing must be done alone, but we derive necessary energy from our peers; we produce best when we are supported.
