The Writer’s Corner

Grant Munroe’s Writing Space

“providing writers with a homey retreat” Over the years, I’ve written in a variety of places: a tiny studio apartment in Brooklyn, a refurbished closet, a desk at a Wall Street brokerage (between tasks, secretly), and countless cafés.

This is a marked change from, say, ten years ago when I sight-read everything. […]
