we know you tell stories.

    Join us, at Grackle and Grackle, in expanding the literary landscape in this greatest of American cities. We host creative writing workshops in-house and around Houston, a reading group for books in translation, and we are in the midst of creating a publishing house.

    Located in the Houston Heights, our creative writing workshops are taught by accomplished writers who know how to teach writing. Our consulting team works with nonprofits and businesses who want to bring in workshops or add literary expertise into a project. Our goal is to help every Houstonian find the kind of story they want to tell, to help them tell it in the most engaging way possible, and to encourage them to write enough that the process becomes easier and more fluid with time. We all know that creative writing can feel like a luxury we don’t have time for, and that creative writing is a piece of our lives we must make time for. We work hard to ensure our students leave classes with the desire to write, to revise, to forge forward; that our critiques are forthright and true to each individual writer’s intentions and goals and not to a group’s norms.

    We know you tell stories.

    We are here to help you share them. In that light, we also offer discounts and scholarships to ensure that every person who wants to take a workshop with us is able to — if you need financial assistance to make the workshop, don’t hesitate to contact Miah Arnold.
