Texas Writes is a statewide program that brings accomplished authors to small community libraries for a half day writing workshop. Each event is free and open to the public.
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 more than 75 visits and reached countless writers across the state.
The Texas Writes program has been on hiatus since March 2020 with in-person visits expected to resume in Fall 2021.
