‘Alternative Groundbreaking’ for Write On’s New Facility

Write On, Door County will begin constructing its new home in Juddville. The center will be located on 34 acres on the corner of Highway 42 and Juddville Road and will include a writers’ library, classroom and space for gatherings, readings and other events. Write On’s grounds also include a house used year-round for its thriving writer’s residency program – as well as The Coop, the writing studio of the late writer Norbert Blei. Write On will host an “alternative groundbreaking” July 7, 11 am – 12:30 pm. Instead of putting shovels to the earth, participants will create a rustic stone wall by adding a stone on which they’ve inscribed a word of their choosing to reflect the dream of the new center. The event will also include a toast, a reading by Door County Poet Laureate Nancy Rafal and a half-mile poetry hike. To learn more about the event and building plans, visit
