In October 2021, Write On, Door County hosted local published authors during the inaugural Door County Writers and Book Fair. Following that event, the authors continued to meet and formed the Door County Published Authors Collective (DCPAC).
The newly formed group wants to bring together local writers and champion them as heavily as the community’s visual-art groups in hopes of expanding the county’s reputation: shifting it from being a “center for the arts” to a “center for arts and literature.”
Since the book fair, DCPAC has begun planning more coordinated group events, including the second annual Door County Writers and Book Fair, scheduled for Oct. 1, 2022. The events seek to raise awareness of DCPAC’s many talented local writers and their work, sharing ideas about marketing and becoming a network to support those in the writing and publishing process.
