Austin Literary Events

My hometown and current residence of Austin, TX is teeming with literary events. From authors reading passages of newly published novels, to poetry slams, to writing events, there is something for any writer at any stage. But I often found it incredibly difficult to learn about these events. Whose life isn't completely chocked full of commitments anyway? Who has time to surf from site to site trying to find interesting ways to interface with Austin's storytelling community? I'd guess no one, few at most. 

So I'm taking one for the team I suppose. I decided that in my own effort to become more involved with this community I'd do the surfing myself. I am enthusiastically taking time out of my own schedule to do the surfing. I enjoy it, I can't say otherwise. I've begun collecting events into the Austin Literary Events Instagram page. Perhaps it will grow if the audience does onto more platforms, for now, keeping it simple.
