Established in 1981, the Writers’ League of Texas is a nonprofit professional organization whose primary purpose is to provide a forum for information, support, and sharing among writers, to help members improve and market their writing skills, and to promote the interests of writers and the writing community.
With approximately 1,500 members nationwide, we are composed of published and unpublished writers as well as those who recognize the written word as art and simply love to read.
Our name, Writers’ League of Texas (formerly Austin Writers’ League), reflects our membership base, over 50% of which resides outside the Central Texas area, and represents the numerous programs we offer to the entire community of Texas writers.
What’s your mission at the Writers’ League?
The Writers’ League of Texas promotes literacy and elevates the art of writing.
Since you guys are a non-profit organization, How are you getting money?
We are partially funded by the City of Austin, Texas Commission on the Arts, and National Endowment for the Arts. Our members also contribute a great deal of time and money to help us achieve our mission. Learn how you can contribute and become a member or volunteer.
