About Metropolitan Breakfast Club:
As Austin’s Premier Speaking Club since 1984, the Metropolitan Breakfast Club provides a forum for leaders in government, business, education, non-profit and the arts to speak to our members. Topics are quite varied and are relevant, timely and informative. Our membership is composed of a diverse group of Central Texas residents from all walks of life and attendance is typically +/- 90. We meet every Wednesday morning at the UT Club from 7:00 am to 8:30 am and allow 30 – 45 minutes for speakers, including Q&A. We are lively and inquisitive, even at that hour. For more information about the club, including upcoming and previous speakers, please follow mbcaustin.org.
For more than three decades, the purpose and mission of the Writers’ League of Texas has been to provide a forum for information, support, and sharing among writers; to help writers improve on their craft and market their skills; to promote the interests of writers and the writing community at large; and to elevate the art and enterprise of writing.
At BrainstormATX, authors will gather to discuss the craft of writing and the business of publishing, and develop skills that they need for a prosperous writing career. We welcome all published and aspiring authors in any genre, as well as authors of both fiction and nonfiction.

Creative Mornings provide an ongoing source of inspiration and networking in the Austin creative community. Our speakers, audience and venues are all sourced locally, and we honor our city’s motto to “keep it weird” by welcoming creative types of all sorts. #CMATX
