I was lucky enough to be part of Room 204’s inaugural year. It was a huge benefit to me as a writer. It helped me to take myself seriously and look at different avenues in which I could produce work and get paid for it (no, really.) Thanks to Room 204 I had my first short story published had another placed in a competition got commissioned to produce work collaborated with an artist on a comic strip had poems published and so on.
