Central Houston IWA!
2017 Event Calendar
Change is in the Air!
Change is in the air!  Here in Houston, spring and summer are parrying valiantly, striving upon each new storm front to gain the upper hand.  And we in the Central Houston IWA! have had a match of our own going on.  But now the results are in on our very first on-line contest.  Please join me in congratulating Michelle Hernandez for her winning journal: Get Ready for Change.

We extend a hearty invitation to YOU!  Come join our enthusiastic group of developing writers as we hone our skills in our monthly teachings, read-arounds or critique sessions.  There is room for all, and we look forward to helping you achieve your writing dreams.
