Flanner Community Writing CenterThe Flanner Community Writing Center will work to facilitate social justice and support strong communities through individual written literacy development, rhetorical problem solving, and participatory action research.

  • The Flanner Community Writing Center opens Monday, January 30 at the Flanner House campus, located at 2424 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46208. 
  • As an open-access writing center, the Flanner Community Writing Center invites Indianapolis residents to collaborate with writing consultants on workplace, school-based, and personal writing.
  • All services are provided free of charge, and residents are encouraged to use the Flanner Community Writing Center as resource for bolstering confidence and effectiveness in writing. 
  • Writers may work with writing consultants in a confidential, one-on-one setting or within small groups. Both walk-ins and appointments are accepted. A range of summer and fall writing workshops will be offered. 

A community writing center is a place that invites everyone to talk, work, and collaborate on writing and written literacies. A community writing center is like a library except instead of checking out books, people work on writing their own books, letters, websites, and essays. It’s a place where writers talk about writing, practice strategies, ask questions, exchange ideas, and increase effectiveness and confidence in personal, school, and workplace writing.
