Lit Cleveland recently leased an office in the Gordon Square Arcade building, enabling us to better serve our members and customers and offer a west side hub for workshops. Since its creation in August 2015, Literary Cleveland has promoted the literary arts by hosting a variety of writing workshops, classes, readings, and networking events at libraries, independent bookstores, and other venues around town. In addition to helping local writers develop their craft, the organization aims to build a strong network of writers and connect them to opportunities and readers in their community.
Director Lee Chilcote, marketing and programming coordinator Jay Rosen, and several interns work in the office on a daily basis. The organization uses the atrium conference room for workshops. Going forward, Literary Cleveland is excited to join forces with businesses and organizations in Gordon Square in order to to build on its prior successes, expand its base, and continue to provide quality programming to Northeast Ohio's literary community.
