Resources for Writers

The Keene Public Library believes that everyone has a book in them and we want to help community aspiring writers as well as established writers throughout the process. You can see what is scheduled and sign up for our events and classes online.

The Keene Public Library hosts a Monday Night Fiction Writers Group that meets for eight weeks three or four times a year. 

Each November during NaNoWriMo, the library provides a writing space and treats for WriMos.

Each year, the Keene Public Library offers at least one workshop series for high school and middle school students.
