The general statistic for those who want to write a book someday hovers around 80%–give or take. That’s nearly 200 million Americans who are itching to write a book.
Beginning on September 12, Meinders Library will help you reach your goal. On the second Thursday of each month from 6:30pm-8:00pm, we will host the Writer’s Cafe, a place where aspiring writers can gather, write, discuss, support, and connect.
The Writer’s Cafe will be open to ages 12 and up. Light snacks and beverages may be brought in by participants as long as beverages can be closed and participants clean up after themselves.
At the beginning of each session, we will spend a few minutes talking about projects, progress, and goals. The remaining time will be flexible, with participants able to share excerpts and provide feedback as desired, to discuss writing questions and concerns, or to simply write.
As a writer myself, the hardest thing to do is prioritize and carve out solid writing time. I’ve been off the train more than I’ve been on it since I began working at the library. It’s time I dig deep and get back into the habit of writing.
If time isn’t your only barrier to writing, we have desk top computers for participants to use, as well as two laptops if necessary. In addition, all writing styles, lengths, and genres are welcome. The only limit is your commitment.
Please share this information with anyone you know who has ever exclaimed, “I should write a book!”
