FULFILL YOUR LITERARY GIFT LONGINGS!

Join us at our Spring store sale! Everything* is 50% off! T-shirts, candles, journals, stickers, pens, art, prompt packs – and more!

*Books by local authors are not on sale – heck no! You buy their book, they get full pop on payment! That’s how we do!

Community Anthology currently SOLD OUT!

We are awaiting our next batch of anthologies…turns out, there’s a paper shortage! *YIKES!* And so, we wait patiently for the paper to arrive so we can get more copies! If you have ordered a copy, we will mail/deliver it out as soon as we get them!

In the meantime, check out this lovely piece that the All Write In Sin City podcast created about our glorious launch! Thank you Kim, Sarah and Irene!


The Poetry of Flowers Poetry Class!

Tuesdays in May! Do you love flowers? Would you enjoy getting flowers each week? How about writing about these flowers in the beautiful container that is poetry?

For information about the class and how to register, please CLICK HERE!

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED!

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED…

Because submissions are coming in and we desire more!!

Because the season is changing soon, and that means our experience with community will too!

Because back-to-school initiates memories of community…and that woody, new-pencil & lead smell that brings a ruffle to a belly…

Because this pandemic pushes onwards and what does that mean for communities around the globe?

Submission guidelines remain the same. They are HERE.


We’ve got really cool stuff in the store.

Our little store that could is really chugging along! With exciting new items like literary tees and candles, soap and mints, stickers and stationary…come on in and have a looky-loo! Payments: cash, credit, debit, paypal.

Also, thank you to Keri for the idea to sell ‘mystery’ books! That is, books that are wrapped in craft paper with hints to what the book is about – but the title remains a mystery! These gently used books are $5.00 each with 100% of the cost going towards workshop and class scholarships.

September hours will posted soon! Happy writing! Be kind!
