Where Do You Write?

The act of writing is magical. The writer is taking ideas and half-formed thoughts and turning them into books that are tangible, exciting, maybe even life-changing. Naturally, people who love those books become curious about the site of that magic act, which is why so many people are fascinated by writers’ spaces. Thus we get projects like photographer Kyle Cassidy’s “Where I Write“. Does your favorite author live inside a teetering tower of books, like Samuel Delany here? Do they write by candlelight? Does a cat grudgingly share the space? Find out below!
