Writers are invited to drop in and connect Saturday, Oct. 1, during a 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. MWPAs Write-In at Camden Public Library, one of six taking place around the state that day and time.

Sometimes, tiny shifts in perspective can radically change one’s approach to writing. Eudora Welty used to pin her stories across her bed so she could see them as a whole; Gay Talese tacks his drafts up to a bulletin board and reads them across the room through binoculars. While Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance has not experimented with these exact methods, its members can attest to the potency of switching up one’s usual writing space.

To that end, MWPA is partnering with libraries across the state to offer free writing space and community. Write-In attendees should bring their own laptops, pens, paper, water, etc. Other libraries hosting Write-Ins will be Bangor, Portland and York public libraries; and Eastport’s Peavey Memorial Library.
