Joplin Writers’ Faire

Save the date for the 8th Annual Joplin Writers’ Faire: Saturday, October 12, 2024 from 10am-1pm at Joplin Public Library!

Held annually each October, this event connects all sorts of writers to their existing and potentially new audiences while encouraging community support of local and regional writers. During the event, booths will be set up throughout the library’s Community Room, The Bramlage & Willcoxon Foundation Gallery, and the lobby, where visitors can stop and visit with authors and publishers from a variety of genres, as well as have a chance to win door prizes. This is a FREE, all-ages, public event. Library cards and registration are not necessary.
