About Us

The Permian Basin Writers Workshop was born through the efforts of the Midland County Public Library Foundation. Its purpose was and is to bring together the most qualified writers and teachers of writing for a workshop gathering of authors in diverse genres and levels of the writing craft.


Today, the Workshop is administered under the Permian Basin Bookies, a nonprofit organization of West Texas writers seeking to  bring national recognition to the plethora of talent in the area. The Bookies are open to membership of those wanting to improve their craft and sell what they write. Improving literacy from the beginning reader to the most professional writer is always on the mind of the organization.
