Parking Your Buns at Jot 4

If you’ve never been to Baker Book House, you are missing out. Fortunately, you can easily rectify that mistake by attending the next Jot Writers’ Conference which is being held at Baker Book House on Friday, September 12th (but you probably already knew that).

There are a lot of great reasons why we hold Jot at a bookstore. Here are just a few:

  • Bookstores are natural second homes to writers (and for those of you who would say that coffee shops are even more natural second homes for writers, Baker Book House is home to Icons Coffee, an indie coffee shop with the best Chai Latte in the world).
  • The space is free for us to use because Baker Book House is wonderfully supportive of West Michigan’s vibrant writing community (plus, one of the members of the writing group that runs Jot works there).
  • And finally, there are a lot of great places to tuck yourself away and work on your book.

It is this last part that makes Baker especially well-suited for hosting Jot, because Jot is one of the only writers’ conferences in existence that plans writing time right into the conference itself.

Let’s take a look at some of the nooks around the bookstore into which you may nestle to work on your book at Jot.

    The fourth JOT CONFERENCE is almost upon us (Sept. 12!). One of our hopes for JOT is to offer writers time and space to write during the event itself. My co-conspirator, Josh, wrote the post below to highlight all of the cool spaces for writing at Baker Book House. If you’re in the Grand Rapids area, we hope to see in one of these nooks on September 12.
