Rail Writers Family Ride

May 13, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT

All aboard! Rail Writers, The Writer’s Garret’s favorite summer program, takes to the DART light rail for a 4 hour family excursion of writing, sharing, and exploration. Families will meet with a Garret teaching artist at Tyler St. Station, board the light rail and journey into the heart of the Arts District to explore. Guided by their teaching artists, writers young and old will reflect on what they experience, and then be encouraged to share. After lunch at Klyde Warren Park, everyone will re-board the light rail and return back to Tyler St. Station.

Rail Writers moves (literally!), so all participants should plan to wear footwear that is comfortable and will allow boarding and exiting the light rail, and a moderate amount of walking on paved surfaces.

Because Rail Writers is intended as a family activity, all parties must include at least 1 adult and 1 child. Due to group size limitations, parties may not exceed 4 people total, regardless of age. Rail Writers is designed to best engage young writers in grades 4-8.

Rail Writers is a free program (The Writer’s Garret covers DART passes and supplies) but the cost of lunch is not included. Access to food trucks will be available at Klyde Warren Park, or families may elect to pack a lunch.
