Writer In The Window November 2022

In November 2022 as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoRiMo), we are offering local writers a chance to spend 2 hours working on their novel, poetry collection, play, or other literary works on Fridays and Saturdays.

Appletree hosted writers in our windows for a number of years before COVID-19; we would like to invite writers back this year to write in our window, affording them the opportunity to share their “craft”  and creative inspiration with passersbys in the Cedar Fairmount neighborhood.

Please call the store or email us at to learn more or to signup for a spot in our windows.
