2016 Workshops for Writers

TTBF is not just about getting to hear from favorite authors and snagging a few great autographs. (Although, we admit, that’s pretty great.)

We’re also about encouraging our future authors…YOU!

This year we will once again be offering free writing workshops for attendees who register in advance. We’re welcoming back Austin Public Library’s Badgerdog writers, Carrie Fountain and Sasha West, for two workshops, and we’ve added a third workshop opportunity through our new festival partner BarrioWriters.org, hosted by writer Sarah Rafael Garcia!

Claim your spot today! Space is limited and time is growing short!

These workshops are open to teens age 13 to 18 years old.
