Taylor MooreDown-Range-Taylor-Moore-book“I can’t say enough good things about my experience at the West Texas Writers’ Academy.

The instructors and guest speakers are amazing and a great reason to attend, but of equal value is the opportunity to network. Writers need other writers in their lives, and there’s no better place to make lasting friendships. I can truly say that WTWA has been a positive force in my writing career, and I would recommend it for authors at every level.”

Taylor Moore, author of Down Range

Totally immersing myself in writing for an entire week provided the focus I needed in advancing my publishing career. Nowhere can you get such personalized attention of your teachers."
