The Best from Texas Creative Writing Professors and Their Students

Professors of creative writing in Texas are publishing and award-winning writers of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction.
     Writing Texas features the best of their writing each year as well as outstanding creative writing from their students. 

The Texas Association of Creative Writing Teachers (TACWT) is a community of secondary and higher education teachers and professors, workshop facilitators, students, and individual writers. We focus on supporting and encouraging literary arts in Texas. For more information, go to the official TACWT website:
