Brazos is pleased to host Celebrating Texas Independents: Our Great Literary State's Independent Presses, Journals, Bookstores & More.

Texas has a thriving literary scene – are you taking full advantage of the opportunities in your own state, especially in your own backyard?

Whether you’re a Texas writer looking for publication, or a book lover who wants to support Texas-owned and operated businesses, this month the Writers’ League of Texas is partnering with some of the state’s greatest Independents -- in conjunction with Texas Independence Day -- to host a series of free and open events throughout the month of March in cities across the state.

These panel discussions will focus on the great opportunities for writers and readers that Texas has to offer, from independent presses, to journals, to bookstores, and beyond, while also answering writers' burning questions (bring your burning questions!) about the publishing process, submitting to presses and journals, catching the eye of an editor, and more.
