Founded in the mid-’70s, the Texas Association of Creative Writing Teachers (TACWT) brings together teachers of creative writing from across the state of Texas. Members teach in university and college creative writing programs as well as high school and summer workshops. Some members are independent scholars.
Each year, in late September, TACWT hosts its annual  conference in a Texas city.  The conference includes panels on creative writing pedagogy and readings by individual members.  Previous conference locations include Fort Worth, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Beaumont, Lubbock, and Wimberly.
We invite you to learn more about our organization and JOIN US.
