Writers across the state sometimes need a few pointers or critique on their work from a fellow scribe, and that's where The Writers' Guild Of Texas comes in.

Program Coordinator for the Richardson based Writers' Guild of Texas, Rainer Bantau, along with guest speaker at the upcoming July WGT Meeting, Jim Tyler Anderson from Texas A&M University-Commerce, joined Notably Texan on Tuesday, June 2. Topics covered include the history and mission of the Guild, plus updates from Anderson on this season's theater schedule, and more.

More about The Writers' Guild of Texas is available via their website.

Notably Texan is heard weekdays from Noon - 3pm on KETR.
