About THPW

Our Mission:

To bring together writers of the Panhandle of Texas and surrounding regions; to help them in attaining higher writing standards; to encourage them toward their goals of publication; to help published writers promote their work.

Since 1920, Texas High Plains Writers has fostered writing by supporting writers from all backgrounds and experience. We hold bi-monthly meetings to socialize and educate, foster critique groups, sponsor writing contests, and present an annual youth writing conference.

We strive to educate and encourage each other while we serve the community by promoting learning and literacy. We welcome all writers—not all of our members are published or make their living in the writing game. Our aim is to help everyone achieve a level of professionalism in whatever writing they enjoy.
