Writers’ League of Texas Shifts Workshops, Programs Online


Like other arts and culture non-profits, the Writers’ League of Texas is moving some of its programming online as more cities and communities are under shelter-in-place orders because of the coronavirus pandemic.

A list of workshops and classes can be found at writersleague.org/WLTOnlineClasses

And in case you’ve decided to use your home stay to finally start (or finish) a writing project, WLT is offering a free live webinar on how to keep your creative focus.

“Writing During a Pandemic: Tools and Tips for Keeping Your Creative Life Going Right” will be offered 8 p.m. CST March 31. You can register at writersleague.org/calendar/writingduringapandemic

Writers League Executive Director Becka Oliver will be joined by authors Edward Carey, Michael Noll, Maya Perez, and Natalia Sylvester for discussion on how they are approaching the writing process during this time full of so many distractions.

Organizers are taking questions too. Fill out this Google form with some of your own tips or tools for jumpstarting your creative process, or ask a question.
