Accessibility at the Loft
The Loft is committed to making its programs and facilities accessible to everyone in the literary community. Please contact the Loft for more information or to discuss accommodations you may need.
The Loft's website is designed in compliance with ADA accessibility guidelines. Applications for Loft grants, awards, and contests are accepted through Fluid Review, a submission portal that works with screen readers.
The Loft Literary Center is located within Open Book, which is accessible to people using wheelchairs. Entrances to the building have automated door openers; the Loft office does as well. Elevators travel to all floors of the building. Seating is wheelchair-accessible in Loft classrooms, writers’ studios, and the Performance Hall. Open Book’s parking lot is accessible and includes designated disability parking spots by the back door. All public restrooms are wheelchair-accessible.
Assistive Listening Devices
Sound amplification and assistive listening technology are available in all classrooms. Receivers may be borrowed free-of-charge from the Loft office.
You are welcome to bring a service animal to the Loft.
Many Loft readings, events, and programs are free. Discounted rates for classes are available to writers who qualify based on household income. Writers currently enrolled in public assistance can qualify for the scholarship pool and take Loft classes for only a $10 processing fee.
All-gender restrooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Open Book.
Please contact the Loft if you have any questions regarding accessibility.
