What people are saying about Carol Dannhauser...

 Carol Dannhauser created a co-working space designed specifically for writers at the Fairfield County Story Lab. She opened the 2,500 square-foot business at 21 Charles St. in Westport. Now, writers who tend to feel isolated in home offices or cramped in coffee shops have their own space to write and collaborate. She has taken the joint office share concept to new heights for writers. Plus, community events bring locals together.
