Grackle and Grackle hosts creative writing classes taught by talented writers who love to teach. We also consult with organizations and businesses seeking a literary touch on big projects, or who want us to create workshops for team retreats or other events. We work with all ages of writers.
We have hosted weekend workshops for retreats geared toward specific kinds of writing, therapy, or outcomes; and have run weekly workshops in institutional or hospital settings. As consultants, we deliver strategic plans, texts, publications, illustrations, and videos. We collaborate with graphic design, landscape, urban planning, and architecture firms.
Grackle and Grackle was founded in 2014 by writers Miah Arnold and Raj Mankad, each of whom had already spent twenty years writing and wondering in Houston. Our goal was, and remains, to enlarge the literary landscape of this greatest of American cities through the power of story.
