Barnes & Noble Bookstore Cafe
Writers can hang out in the cafe, read and write, and maybe, meet up with other writers or, at least, intelligent beings.
I wish there were other places but nothing else I have seen even comes close.

Primarily for literary writers, USI holds a Ropewalk summer retreat in New Harmony, giving participants the opportunity to attend workshops and to confer privately with one of five prominent writers.

Also, during the academic year, USI hosts poets, novelists, and masters of the short story to hold readings on campus. Speakers will be announced closer to the date, and the readings are free.

The second Sunday of every month there are poetry readings at Fiddlers Hearth in South Bend, Indiana. It's mostly college students but it's something.

Unfortunately, both Borders and Barnes and Noble in Merrilville, In. have closed.  Writers' groups are now looking for new places to meet.

The only reason I am posting here is because I liked seeing "Indiana" in the thread title on the main page. So sue me.

B & N in Greenwood, In is supposed to be host to a writing group on alternate Sundays. I have never attended as I usually work those days.
