Celebrating the dignity and value of all, we help Texans process trauma through creative writing and storytelling to foster self-worth and positive community connections.


Rough Draft TX was founded in 2016 under Down South Word of Mouth.


While our classes had to change from in-person to digital and workbooks during Covid, we remained a way for incarcerated individuals find value in their voices.


Rough Draft has several projects that serve Travis County, Hays County, Tarrant County, and others. 

If you are interested in having our programming in your facility, please reach out!


Your donation helps to provide storytelling classes for participating groups. Classes enable participants to write, share, and connect to one another. Donations allow participants to feel valued as well as reconnect to their community.

Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved through both time and donations. We are always looking for people who would like to make a difference in the lives of people in their community. Reach out and let your talent's shine!
