A New Era Begins with The Writers Place

The Writers Place has a new home! As of December 1st, our office is located in the Nonprofit Village at 31 W 31st Street, KCMO, between Main and Broadway. We look forward to serving the greater Kansas City area through more community outreach, including exploration of new venues and making more connections with writers and supporters of the literary arts. Please consider renewing or signing up for a membership and volunteering today.
