Journal Swap Event in Winter Park


Writer's Block Bookstore will be hosting our first-ever Journal Swap Event. Lauren Zimmerman, our owner, has always had a passion for Journals, pens, and pencils. We thought, why not take this passion and find people who equally love Journals, pens, and pencils?

Come join us for this free event, (registration is mandatory) at our Winter Park location. Anyone is welcome to attend, and in order to participate in the journal swap guests must bring one or more of their favorite journals, in good condition, new, and not used. Guests are welcome to bring more than one journal. For every journal that is brought to the event, they will be able to select another journal to swap from a fellow guest. 

Upon arrival, each guest will be given a ticket for each journal they bring. The Journal Swap will take place at 6:30 in the evening. We are inviting guests to come and mingle with other journal lovers from 5-6:30. Lauren will give a welcome announcement and talk a little bit about per passion for journals. Guests are welcome to bring pencils and pens to swap at the event as well. There will be a table for swapping journals, pens, and pencils. 

Writer's Block Bookstore will provide refreshments for the guests including water, and wine.  Writer's Block Bookstore will be donating a few of our favorite journals into the swap as well! 

Additional Note: For any guests that purchase any of the following items from Writer's Block Bookstore, (both in-person or online) and attend the event, will be able to select a new journal from our owner, Lauren's, private collection. 



Meet Joe Morgan, an indie folk/Americana artist hailing from the great state of Michigan. From a young age, Joe was drawn to the beauty and power of music, but it wasn't until recently that he found his voice as a musician. With his debut EP “The Good Ones,” Joe is quickly making a name for himself in the music world.

His music is a breath of fresh air, with a sound that is both soulful and soothing. You'll find yourself lost in the stories he weaves through his lyrics, each one painting a picture of love, loss, and hope. His melodies are honest and vulnerable, evoking a sense of calm and introspection.

But don't let the soothing sound fool you, Joe's music is full of depth and substance. Each song is a journey, taking you on a ride through the emotions that make us human. With every note, Joe reminds us that we're not alone in our struggles and that there is beauty to be found in even the darkest moments.

If you're looking for a new artist to add to your playlist, look no further than Joe Morgan. His music is a balm for the soul, and his debut EP is just the beginning of what is sure to be a long and exciting career in music.
