    The people who started this site also run a pretty unique writing workshop in San Francisco (http://red-room.com/) where you go once a week and basically write in silence. It’s amazing how much you get done if you can carve out an hour of quiet-time in your life.

    Quite a lot of the people who were active writers in the program went over to work on the online community, so the people behind it are all enthusiasts and lovers of books and writers.

    (Disclosure: I finished the first draft of a novel at the writing program and am an advisor to the site.)

    It’s a pretty unique community and they’ve got a lot of cool features planned for it. Can’t recommend them enough.

    Why did they call it Red Room? It sounds like the vestibule for prostitution!

    I don’t see any connection to writing with that title. (Now, if they had called it Red Rum…!)

    The “Red Room Writer’s Society” writing workshops are held at the Archbishop’s Mansion in San Francisco (http://www.sanfrancisco.com/archmansion/) which is a historic site now converted into a small hotel.

    IIRC, the Red Room is the name of the dining room where the sessions are held. Here’s a small picture: http://www.sanfrancisco.com/archmansion/gifs/archbishopsmansion_08.jpg

    If it wasn’t an actual prelate’s home, you could easily mistake the decor for a bordello. But it fits with the ‘Barbary Coast’ theme of the place.

    The Red Room people are having fun with it now. Everything they put out has a ‘red’ theme. They just carried the name over to the social network.
