The Writer's Block was established in 2014 by 826NYC co-founder Scott Seeley and Drew Cohen. It was opened with former BSSco. store manager and Archway Editions publisher Chris Molnar. It is the first independent bookstore in Las Vegas, and second in the state of Nevada.
Behind the bookstore front at the original Fremont St. location was the literacy education component of the Writer's Block, known as Codex. Similar in layout to the educational area behind 826NYC's Superhero Supply Store, Codex also featured movable walls, tables and desks. It was used for free writing workshops for children ages 5-18, in addition to readings, signings, and ongoing series such as Neon Lit, the monthly reading by MFA and PHD writing students at UNLV.
In 2019, the Writer's Block relocated to the Lucy, a new art center in downtown Las Vegas.

Coolest book store in Las Vegas. Definitely a place you could get lost in- even though it isn't very big. (My kids were excited about the pet bunny.)

This is a fun independent book shop in the Las Vegas arts district. I like that they offer free writers workshops for children. The children get their stories printed at the store's printing press and they get to take home their book. This is a great way to encourage our future writers. Besides the typical books available at big box stores, there's always a good amount of lesser known books. I would have purchased 2 books today but the font sizes were too small for my eyes. Bummer. I would definitely come back, especially for the fun children's books.
This little hidden gem!! Great coffee, great customer service... A cute little space.. just down the road from the famous gold and silver pawn shop. They have a great variety of genres and a fun atmosphere.
