The Monroe Walton Community Arts Center is home for the Walton Writers and supports local authors with several weekly and monthly literary events such as Write-In Mondays, Walton Writers monthly meetings, and Open Mic Night. Set in the old Monroe Post Office building this eighty year old build is filled with charm and warmth. It has hosted several book launches for local authors and provides a book nook for writers to come create and commune with fellow writers. The book nook also provides a retail area that shelves books by local authors.
The Walton Writers Group will host an after conference event with refreshments, attended by some of the conference presenters, and keynote speaker. This is a great atmosphere to network with fellow attendees and relax before the award banquet or grabbing a dinner at one of the several cozy downtown restaurants.
