About Texas Writes

Texas Writes

The Texas Writes program brings free half-day writing workshops for adult writers to small community libraries across the state.

The program includes:

  • Two craft of writing presentations
  • A moderated conversation on the writing process and the publishing side
  • Plenty of time for questions
  • PLUS refreshments (all at no cost to the library or attendees).

Supported by a grant from the Tocker Foundation, Texas Writes launched in 2013 with five visits to libraries in Central Texas. Nearly a decade later, the program has hosted close to 100 visits and reached countless writers across the state.

Communities visited include: Alpine, Atlanta, Bandera, Bridge City, Bulverde, Chico, Clyde, Crockett, Cross Plains, Decatur, Diboll, Dublin, George West, Iowa Park, Kaufman, Krum, Lake Dallas, Marathon, Marfa, Medina, Marble Falls, Mason, Onalaska, Palacios, Peñitas, Port Aransas, Pottsboro, Robstown, Salado, Wimberley, Wolfe City, Woodville, and many more. If you’d like to see your community added to this list, reach out to us at wlt@writersleague.org.
