Executive Director, Inprint

Inprint is the leading literary arts nonprofit in the Houston area. Its mission is to inspire readers and writers, which it achieves through the acclaimed Inprint Brown Reading Series (founded in 1980), Cool Brains! Inprint Readings for Young People, workshops for the aspiring writers, senior citizens, K-12 teachers, and children, and support for the nationally renowned University of Houston Creative Writing Program.

Inprint envisions Houston, Texas, as a city where the literary arts are a defining resource. Inprint serves as a vital wellspring of literary life, both locally and nationally. Thanks in large part to Inprint’s activities and support, Houston is a vibrant community of creative writers and readers, rich with workshops, readings, forums, and other kinds of literary activity. Writers from all backgrounds and parts of the world delight in coming to Houston to read, teach, and study creative writing; and thousands of Houstonians, recognizing the value and impact of the written word, join in Inprint programs to write, read, and support the literary arts. The community is enriched by some of the nation’s top emerging writers, who study at the University of Houston Creative Writing Program and teach at Inprint and in community centers, schools, universities, and other places throughout the Houston area.
