Write Art Out is new nonprofit dedicated to collaborate, develop, and promote the literary endeavors of the San Antonio community. We supports the development of communities through writing, performance, and engagement with a strong artistic cooperation.

For nearly five years, organizers from Write Art Out have been committed to literary projects and programs that enhance and engage the local community. Every first and third Wednesday of each month, The Blah Poetry Spot has existed as a poetry open mic at Deco Pizzeria (1815 Fredericksburg rd). The Blah Poetry spot has been a platform for local poets to share their works; held drives for school supplies, clothes, food, and more; raised funds to send poets to represent San Antonio at regional and national poetry competitions; hosted writing workshops available to all ages; mentored and sponsored Fresh Ink Youth Slam (San Antonio's only nationally recognized youth poetry slam); created a residency for local poets; and collaborated with other local nonprofit organizations, such as Haven for Hope Homeless Shelter, the San Anto Cultural Arts, and the Guadalupe Cultural Arts.

Our Mission: 
Write Art Out is dedicated to collaborate, develop, and promote the literary endeavors of the San Antonio community. The organization strongly supports the development of communities through writing, performance, and engagement with a strong artistic cooperative dynamic. Write Art Out is a charitable arts group focusing on the education of literary arts in San Antonio. We accept all members of the community regardless of religion, education, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, race, and/or cultural background. Write Art Out seeks to promote a safe space for its members to create works which encourage community development and progress.

Our Goals:

Future forward, Write Art Out would like to spread the literary arts and humainites through special programs and events.

Write Art Out will continue to grow the Blah Poetry Spot by securing a building and base of operations. This location will also serve as headquarters for any writing workshops, after-school programs, and special events.

Write Art Out would like to create a writing series dedicated to former and active servicemen and women suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. 

Write Art Out will continue our poet in residiency program which recognizes local area writers and builds connections between artists and communities.
