The following questions are related to The Writers Place as an organization and community. For more general questions about writing, publishing, etc., take a look at our Tips for Writers page.
How can I read at The Writers Place?
How can I volunteer at The Writers Place?
The Writers Place needs volunteers who can help out at events, assist with office work, serve on committees when members leave, help with yard work, help organize the library, do yard and gardening work, do facility work (i.e. change light bulbs, do minor maintenance jobs), help with housekeeping, and more. Send us your contact information through our Volunteer page.
I need to publish a book/article/poem I wrote. Can the Writers Place help me find a publisher?
The Writers Place does not provide this service. You may find the most information about publishing at your local public library in the research section. A librarian can usually assist you with finding books or other resources about publishing your work. For more information, take a look at the "Publishing" subcategory on our Tips for Writers page.
I want to be in a writers group. How do I join?
The Writers Place has several writers groups that currently meet at our facility. Many of these are currently operating at their capacity for membership since in order for writing groups to be effective they must be fairly small. Sometimes we have a list of people interested in particular areas of writing and when we get enough interested people, we form a new writers group. Send your contact information and interests to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will make sure it is passed on to the appropriate person.
Can I rent the Writers Place for a private event?
Yes! There is more information about renting The Writers Place facility here.
Can I tour The Writers Place?
Tours can be set up Monday through Friday between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM. Email email@example.com for scheduling.
I am interested in teaching a workshop at the writers place. How do I go about signing up to do this?
Please send why you are interested in teaching, a bio, the writing area and topic you would like to teach, and your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will forward your email to the Education Committee.
May I use The Writers Place to do individual research, study, or writing?
The Writers Place library is open Tuesday through Thursday between 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM (except when there are workshops and writers groups scheduled). Please call ahead to ask if the library is open the day and time you are interested in coming. Daytime hours are often available for public study and writing.
