Literary Arts: Brazos Writers

Brazos Writers nuture those devoted to the written word.

by Sarah Kinzbach

Writing can be daunting. Whether a paper for school, a proposal for work, or a novel for the masses, the writing required to create such a work can appear formidable in its infancy. Enter the Brazos Writers, an eclectic group of local writers dedicated to supporting, educating, and encouraging both the written word and all of us who have ever experienced “writer’s block.”

“Writing is a very solitary pursuit,” says Ann Kellett, Ph.D., president of the Brazos Writers. “[The group] provides a supportive atmosphere for aspiring writers.”

The Brazos Writers began in 1987 as an outlet for writers to exchange ideas, learn, mentor and network. With members including published professors and staff from Texas A&M University, successful commercial authors, and aspiring writers, the group provides a wealth of experience, knowledge, and writing diversity.
