Welcome to WordSpace

 

Our Mission: WordSpace is a non-profit literary organization that supports education and writers, connecting Dallas with the best of world literature. Founded in 1994, the organization hosts authors, readings, student workshops, concerts and salons to promote established and emerging artists who use imaginative language in traditional and experimental forms. Through diverse, multi-cultural programs, WordSpace enhances the development of language artists of all ages, facilitates communication throughout the literary community, and contributes to expanding the Dallas literary scene to the widest possible audience.

 

Note on the Local

The local is not a place but a place in a given man – what part of it

he has been compelled or else brought by love to give witness to in

his own mind. And that is THE form, that is, the whole thing, as

whole as it can get.

I think we will be fools to be embarrassed by it. We know the

other neatness possible, the way of the neat pattern, and the dodging

which it must call for. Grace has no part in that. At some point

reached by us, sooner or later, there is no longer much else but

ourselves, in the place given to us. To make that present, and actual

for other men, is not an embarrassment, but love.

First person, no. 1, 1961.
