The Writer's Block is an independent bookseller, publisher, and literacy educator in downtown Las Vegas.

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 Chris Molnar.[1][2] It is the first independent bookstore in Las Vegas, and second in the state of Nevada.[3]

Behind the bookstore front is 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,[4][5] Codex also features movable walls, tables and desks. It is 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.[6]
