We have been hosting write-ins since before we began, literally. The group that was formerly known as The Watershed began hosting write-in events in May of 2015. We met at A Place to Be on Williamson Street, and then, after joining forces with ALL, we began hosting them at our current location on Winnebago Street. Write-ins provide all writers an opportunity to work for two hours with tea, coffee and sometimes conversation but without interruption. As one writer noted, “They’ve been SOOOO valuable” and provided space to over 150 writers. The event is free, but small donations have been known to supply good writing karma.
This event is held on the first Wednesday of each month from 7 to 9 PM.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Madison Arts Commission, with additional funds from the Wisconsin Arts Board.
