Writespace is Houston's new writing center. Founded in April of 2014, we are a grassroots literary arts organization founded by writers, for writers. At Writespace, we support writers of all genres, including writers of literary fiction, poetry, science-fiction, fantasy, mystery, young adult, and other genres. Through our weekly writing workshops led by some of Houston's finest writing teachers, we seek to give writers who can't afford to earn an MFA in Creative Writing the same high-quality training and mentorship opportunities available through MFA programs.
As well as hosting workshops, Writespace offers manuscript consultations, write-ins, readings and open mics, and classes and private lessons for young writers. At Writespace, we plan to have such a positive impact on the local and the global writing community that great books that would not have been written will now be written.
