For those of you who attended last night’s Historical Fiction Panel, you got to see Wix Lounge – a free co-working and event space. Wix has been gracious enough to host a number of WNBA-NYC events, so this week we wanted to spread the word about this great free work space. Read all about them below.

Wix.com Offers Free Co-working and Event Space for Creative Professionals

Freelancers and entrepreneurs hunting for a free space to work can now abandon Starbucks and come to the Wix Lounge. Located steps from Union Square at 10 W 18th St, the Wix Lounge is a completely free co-working and event space for creative professionals. Workers enjoy free wireless internet, coffee, and printing. Creatives can also organize free events at the Lounge that have ranged from classes to fashion shows to art exhibitions. To learn more about the Wix Lounge both as a work and event space, visit the Lounge website at www.wixlounge.com.

Active since 2010, the Wix Lounge is run by Wix.com, a free publishing platform providing user friendly tools for building beautiful, easy-to-make desktop, mobile, and Facebook websites. Wix.com offers web technology that enables users to customize their sites regardless of technical skill. No code necessary. Wix gives users the freedom and ability to customize and update their sites whenever they like, without hiring an expensive pro designer.

Although creatives do not have to be Wix users to work at the Lounge, the space does offer a number of services and resources for professionals with Wix sites. The Lounge offers free one-on-one support sessions with an expert who can walk users through building a site and answer any questions they may have. The space also hosts regular exhibits, performances, and presentations exclusively to promote and aid NYC Wix users.

Through the Lounge, Wix is giving back to the community of creative professionals and entrepreneurs that has allowed the company to flourish worldwide. It is a creative hub in the heart of New York and the only space of its kind.
