Writers: Bring yourselves, leave your work at home. At the Indy WordLab, we're all about experimentation and trying new things with our writing. Each meeting starts with a set theme and puts participants to work with challenging writing prompts built around the strange and unfamiliar. Stop by Indy Reads Books at 7:00 pm on the first Monday of every month to meet local authors and spend just an hour and a half outside of your literary comfort zone.
