Deciding to throw our hats into a city rich in writing institutions and ideas was a big decision for Grackle and Grackle, founded by Raj Mankad and Miah Arnold in 2015. We wanted to contribute to the city we love, and to extend the presence of literature and story into spaces less traditional and less represented. We have been working as creative consultants as writers and literary experts to businesses and nonprofits; we are setting the groundwork for creating a small literary publishing house for poetry and novels; and we join the talented cohort of other organizations in teaching writing workshops.
With the dedication of this website comes our dedication to work for Houston to make its stories known, its storytellers celebrated, and its literary institutions well known.
We would like to thank our frineds at Core Design Studio for gorgeously crafting the website.
