In 2017, we partnered with Joplin Public Library (JPL) to revamp their local author book signing program, resulting in Joplin’s first Writers’ Faire. Held on the last Saturday each October, the aim of the Joplin Writers’ Faire is to connect all sorts of writers – published and non, established and emerging, of varying forms and genres, etc. – to their existing and potentially new audiences while encouraging community support for local and regional writers. Plus, the Joplin Writers’ Faire provides a laid-back atmosphere for anyone who’d like to become more involved in writing learn how to get started.
Always, the Joplin Writers’ Faire is a FREE, public event. Registration for potentially participating writers open on August 1st. Around that time, tune in to POST ART LIBRARY or JOPLIN PUBLIC LIBRARY for details.
