Houston is huge. There are a ton of writers here. It’s possible to be spaced two hours apart and still be considered fellow Houstonians. But sometimes the drive (and the traffic) is worth the hassle and time.
Writespace, a grassroots organization located between the Heights and the Theater District, was founded in April 2014. It supports local writers by offering workshops, readings, classes, and a space to write for writers of all genres.
On Saturday I’m making my inaugural trek to Writespace for a workshop on “How to Write Like Madeline L’Engle,” led by the director of Writespace, Elizabeth White-Olsen. I’ve been re-reading “A Wrinkle In Time” in preparation and am super excited about what I will learn about this fantastic author (one of my absolute faves!)
Writespace is celebrating its first year anniversary with an Indiegogo Campaign to raise funds to provide even more support to writers. If you’re a Houstonian, consider utilizing this resource and giving a few bucks to continue spreading the love and knowledge of writing.
Does your town have a place or organization that supports local authors? Tell me about it!
