If you want a writing community, a source of inspiration, or just a quiet place to think, you can check out one of these five hot spots local creatives have been frequenting.
Cornerstone Coffee House
This coffeehouse full of books is a great place to open up your laptop—or notebook, if you’re really old-school—and start chugging away at your future masterpiece. It’s even a great place to find writing meet-ups, if working alone just isn’t your style.
Indianapolis Public Library
If you’re looking for a classic spot, try your local library. There are plenty of seats for writing, and the classic arches, rows of books, and sky-high windows could spark some inspiration.

Stuck? Take a break and visit the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library for some inspiration from the greats. Browse the selection of books and artwork or type up a message on Vonnegut’s typewriter. You could even be published—the staff posts the best messages on a special Twitter account.

What would writers be without their coffee? Get your caffeine fix and your daily dose of art at this Irvington joint.
It’s less write-y, more read-y, but this independent bookstore is a great place to meet established Indiana authors. You can even pick up a few well-read gems to take home.
