Texas Short Story contest was created to help market and support Texas Authors, while raising funds for literacy.


As art of TAIH, we believe in creating a path to help Texas Authors find their voice through the written word. This may be in the form of Short Stories, or Novels. It is our goal to support each aspect of the creative journey.
