Education on Demand Writers' Academy
West Texas Writers' Academy June 5-9, 2017 Hosted by Jodi Thomas and Timothy Lewis

Find inspiration at the West Texas Writers’ Academy.  Inspiration to perfect a story that needs to be told.  Inspiration to never give up on a publishing dream.  Inspiration that you are not alone in your writing journey.

Renown authors and experts in the field serve as teachers and mentors to guide authors to their goal, whether it’s perfecting technique, writing the best query letter, or marketing a self-published book. 

Small class sizes create an interactive and personal learning environment, and the all-inclusive University campus experience tucks participants away from the world to create the most intensive, writing-focused week of their lives.  Participants leave the Academy with the means to accomplish their goal, a supportive group of cheerleaders and a tribe with whom they belong.

“Without hesitation, I can say that West Texas Writer’s Academy is what laid the foundation for my career as a writer. The knowledgeable and caring instructors helped me to hone my craft and gain the confidence I needed to believe that I could pursue my dream of writing. Don’t hesitate for a moment to take advantage of this great week of learning, growth, and friendship. No matter where you are in your writing career, there is something to be learned during this invaluable week. Just be ready to work hard, have fun, and improve your writing while the parameters of what you believe possible for yourself expand. I know firsthand that a week here can change your life.”
