About the Writing Barn

Library at The Writing Barn

The library space at The Writing Barn is perfect for workshops.

Situated on 7.5 wooded acres in Austin, Texas, The Writing Barn is surrounded by mature trees, home to birds and deer. It’s a peaceful out-of-town environment without ever leaving Austin.

With floor to ceiling bookshelves, rows of instructional craft books, free wi-fi, and no television, The Writing Barn is the perfect spot for an overnight writing retreat, to host a writing class, or throw a book launch party.

Operated by Bethany Hegedus, author of Between Us Baxters and Truth with a Capital T, The Writing Barn is here to serve all your writing-related needs.
