you are here.

we're a group of writers & artists working, creating, sharing, & surviving in the world. most of us live in north texas. our goals are simple: to create & collaborate constantly, to curate places, events, and publications where folks can share their work, and to strengthen friendships & have fun while supporting one another.

we've been just about SIX years now (since summer 2012), which has resulted in something like 80 showcases, countless workshops, dozens and dozens of zines, a dinosaur parade, a protest march, a pool party, a fake wedding, a few batches of beer, a collaboration with the Dallas Museum of Art, late night poetry benders, a podcast series, a small residency program, and many fundraisers supporting our local animal shelter, Friends of the Family, and most recently, the resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline. over the years we have featured hundreds of artists at our shows, both local and traveling, and have proudly witnessed many of our members make incredible things happen near & far.

our collective is currently roaming and does not have a regular venue. we operate mostly out of homes, bars, basements, bookshops, backyards, and the occasional art gallery.

in 2016, the dallas observer named us Best Literary Arts Group in DFW.
