Join us on Saturday, October 28 for the WLT All Member Meet-up in Houston, TX. This in-person meet-up will start at 4:00 PM CDT at The Coffee House at West End and will be open to all WLT members and any other writers who want to join in (so you can bring your other writer friends, the more, the merrier!). This meet-up is meant to bring as many writers together as we can, so while there will be no formal program, there will be games, giveaways, conversation, and community!

Who’s invited?

  • All current WLT Members

Featured Presenter(s)

Retired from a forty year career as a Practice Management Consultant for dental and medical practices, Debra Isman switched from writing training manuals and articles for professional journals and to writing a historical fiction novel. She has been a member of Writers' League of Texas since July 2021 and when not writing she is the volunteer coordinator for a NE Houston ISD elementary school, instilling the love of reading (and writing) in students from Pre-K through fifth grade.
Amanda Wenger is a Houston-based writer and critical care nurse. She is a former Writers’ League of Texas Fellow, a FORGE NYC Fellow, and the recipient of a 2022 Elizabeth George Foundation Grant. She has attended residencies at The Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences, Vashon Artist Residency, In Cahoots Residency, and Greywood Arts to work on her first novel, which was selected as a finalist for the Writers’ League of Texas Manuscript Contest and received an honorable mention for the Speculative Literature Foundation’s Diverse Worlds Grant. She has designed and facilitated writing workshops for health professionals as the Baylor College of Medicine Medical Humanities Artist in Residence and served as a guest instructor through the Lloyd Scholars for Writing and the Arts at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
