“Let a man in a garret but burn with enough intensity, and he will set fire to the world.”
– Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Turn A Phrase
All aboard! Rail Writers takes participants on a journey of writing and exploration. In groups of 10-15, you’ll hop on the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) light rail and travel to unique neighborhoods, museums and other exciting destinations. Guided by a teaching artist, you’ll explore your surroundings and record your experiences and impressions on the page. Finally, you’ll share some of what you’ve created with your friends and passersby before riding the DART back to where your trip began. Rail Writers is an active, immersive trek into the city and through your imagination. As a group, you’ll navigate public transportation and the urban environment, explore and create culture, and get a chance to make your voice heard by sharing your story.
