Presented by The Bindery, join us for a community meeting of 

 

Are you a writer? A book artist? A poet or storyteller? Perhaps a typographer, novelist, educator, or zinester? 

We want your unique input.

Whether you're writing your next 300 page novel or next 300 word blog post; writing in a journal on your couch, or writing FOR the journal in your office: we want your ideas and dreams about shared work space.

Book-builder? Paper maker? Calligrapher? Yes, we want you here too. If you identify with the book, paper, and/or literary art world in Milwaukee, this meeting's for you.

We're looking to create a collaborative membership space that suits the creative and financial needs of the community it aims to serve. We're thus hosting a gathering of like-minded local writers and artisans who are passionate about building that space together.

Join us to share your priorities and learn more about where the project is headed next.
