Welcome to the Block’s Blog!

Some time in late 2017 before we opened our doors, we wanted to put together a place where ideas and information could come together in both the physical and virtual worlds. We managed to put together the website and various social media pages, and while we appreciate the follows, likes, and support, we wanted to offer something more focused on sharing ideas and stories through writing.

Although delayed, we have finally got our act together enough to dive into the blogosphere and get down to writing. We plan to post regularly on a range of topics from the hyper local of what upcoming events we’ve got in the works, to what new foodie things are on the radar and new books, writers and so forth. We’ve got opinions about a lot of things (there is so much happening in the community, and more broadly, the world), and we wish to use this blog to share those opinions with our community.

As we embark on this new blog, we invite you to chime in, comment, send us your thoughts, and if you have something to say or want to write a blog post on a specific subject, submit it to us via email: info@writersblockak.com, subject line: Blog. While not all submissions will be posted, we will consider them. We ask that the word count be limited to 1,500 words or less. If you have questions, please let us know.

Thank you for being part of our community, for reading, for writing, for sharing and gathering, for creating this beautiful space with us here in Spenard.


Vered, Dawnell, Teeka, and the entire Block Family

For the next post, I wanted to address the most common question we get from writers in our community: How do I get my book in your shop?
