Sometimes tiny shifts in perspective can radically change your approach to writing. Gay Talese tacks his drafts up to a bulletin board and reads them across the room through binoculars. Eudora Welty used to pin her stories across her bed so she could see them as a whole. While we’ve never tried either of these exact methods, we can attest to the potency of switching up your usual writing space.
To that end, the MWPA has partnered with libraries across the state to offer free writing space and community. Bring your own laptop, pens, paper, water, etc. Drop by any time throughout the morning of October 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to write and connect.
