IndyPL Author Fair - Meet an Author, Be an Author

We welcomed a variety of authors on August 6 for our annual author fair, an afternoon devoted expressly to Indiana's talented authors. Published writers, aspiring writers, and fans gathered at Central Library to meet each other, network, and attend writing workshops.

We look forward to seeing you at next year's fair! In the spring of 2023 we will be accepting applications for authors who would like to have a table at the fair.

Made possible by Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.

Writing and Creativity

Do you want to draft that novel or revise that story? One of the books on this list might help you see things in a new way.

Several Short Sentences About Writing

Klinkenborg, Verlyn

Klinkenborg writes, "Shape, form, structure, genre, the whole—these have a way of clarifying themselves when sentences become clear." This one made a lot of sense and was very useful.

A Swim in A Pond in the Rain

In Which Four Russians Give A Master Class on Writing, Reading, and Life

Saunders, George

This book encouraged me to try to write as well as I can.

The Artful Edit

On the Practice of Editing Yourself

Bell, Susan

Lots of strategies and advice.
