Want to be a writer? Then why natter on and on about it — do something! Located in the Indianapolis Art Center’s Cultural Complex in Broad Ripple, this non-profit organization offers classes taught by some of Indiana’s best writers, outreach programs in schools, community organizations and correctional institutions — and a variety of literary events (such as their annual fall festival). All of Indiana Writers Center's programs give voice and confidence to people who are rarely heard. The Center has been offering these opportunities since 1979, surviving a number of challenges to remain our city’s literary mainstay.
