Beyond Words

Dallas’ Independent Literary Center

Fostering Creativity

As a “communiversity” dedicated to the power of reading and writing, our programs explore the connections people make through language, art, imagination, and their own sense of what it means to be human.

Widening Access

Whether your interests lie in becoming a member, volunteer, student, mentor, or supporter. We invite you to join our community by taking a class, attending an event,or just dropping by for a cup of coffee and a good book.

Providing Opportunities

The Writer’s Garret provides multiple opportunities to become involved in the community through mentoring, tutoring, leadership opportunities, and much, much more.

Strengthening Community

Even though practiced in solitude, reading and writing are deeply social acts. No one is an island. Language binds us through community, and language opens us to what’s possible.

Writing for Adults

The Writer’s Garret is dedicated to bringing readers, writers, and communities together under one roof and providing a safe refuge to explore new ideas, study old ones, and to create, create, create!

Writing for Kids

Fostering this dedication, The Writer’s Garret partners with community organizations of all types to serve children of every background and life experience by offering specific programs, workshops and courses for kids.
