What is WORD?


WORD exists to serve North Texas writers and writing organizations. Our mission is to connect writers with the resources they need to reach their goals, and to support local writing organizations. We do that by promoting their activities, facilitating multi-group partnerships, and hosting innovative, inclusive 'big-tent' events. Ultimately, WORD strives to cement the Dallas–Fort Worth area's reputation as a nationally-recognized haven of the arts — by cultivating a more diverse, successful, and united North Texas literary community.


Stage Writers Festival — May 18th @ 8pm


WORD is partnering with Stage Writers for an unforgettable evening… 10 minutes at a time.
From comedy to drama, sci-fi to romance, DFW-area playwrights are in the spotlight, when nine short plays receive staged readings by local actors. Festivities will also include raffle prizes, a talkback with the writers, and an audience-choice award. Tickets are $10 (available online or at the door).
