A nonprofit organization founded in 1983, Inprint’s mission is to inspire readers and writers in Houston and beyond. Serving more than 15,000 people annually, Inprint has helped to transform Houston into a diverse and thriving literary metropolis where creativity is celebrated and Houstonians can come together to engage with the written word. Through the Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series, the Inprint Cool Brains! Series, the Inprint Escritores en la casa Series, and other community collaborations, individuals of all ages meet and hear from the world’s most accomplished writers and thinkers. Inprint Writers Workshops for the general public help aspiring authors master their craft and prepare work for publication. Tuition-free community workshops for teachers, senior citizens, healthcare providers, veterans, and the incarcerated help individuals of all backgrounds to become better writers and share their stories. The Inprint Poetry Buskers, with typewriters in hand, demystify and increase appreciation for poetry at programs and events throughout the city. Ink Well, a podcast presented in collaboration with Tintero Projects, showcases emerging and established Latinx writers. Inprint’s support for some of the world’s top emerging writers at the University of Houston Creative Writing Program – more than $4.5 million in fellowships, prizes, and employment – has enabled 600+ graduates to impact their communities through writing, teaching, and more.
