Introducing the Write-About

Created by the Wellington Public Library, this program is a fun way to explore the Town of Wellington while creating your own amazing story!

Located throughout downtown Wellington are illustrations to inspire totally unique tales. Craft a story from one, two, or all of them, and let your imagination run free!

You can write a fiction story or poem, draw a comic or an illustration, compose a song, write a letter to send a friend, even cook a meal–anything you like, as long as it is inspired by these pictures! The sky’s the limit.

Look for Write-About illustrations throughout Main Street in Wellington!
