People are Talking

From Artists, Educators, and Media: 

“I did my first public reading at a WordSpace event in 2002 and the thriving literary community centered around WordSpace has been an essential part of my development as a writer.”
Ben E. Fountain, National Book Critics Award Winner

“Since the WordSpace organization has relocated to Oak Cliff, the subsequent heightened interest in literature and creative writing here has proven to be both inspirational and enlightening. WordSpace’s presence here genuinely feels like a gift to the neighborhood.”
Jeff Liles, Artistic Director, Kessler Theater

“Thank you for such a fine time and soul cleansing experience in Dallas.”   Andrei Codrescu

“…in addition to its willingness to blur the lines between written word and other art forms, WordSpace has remained a source of support across a broad spectrum of local literary interests.”
Peter Simek, D Magazine

“The effect of WordSpace programs and the role they play in the positive development of young people is invaluable. These programs deserve your support.”
Scott Davison, Booker T. Washington School for the Visual and Performing Arts

WordSpace has presented programs with thousands of poets, prose writers, songwriters, playwrights, performance artists, storytellers and scholars across the broadest possible spectrum. Ongoing series include ArtSpeak, Pegasus, First Hearings, African Diaspora: New Dialogues, Salons, Next Generation, WordSpace at The Kessler, Oral Fixation and Dallas Poetry Slam Features.
