Description of Organisation:

In 1989 Kerrie Richert and his partner Jim Cox purchased 240 acres of property in the Texas Hill Country. This property has been protected with a conservation easement. Realizing that the property was special, the owners wanted to share their experience and created the Oatmeal Creek Residency Program for writers. Our mission is to support artistic vision by offering emerging and established writers opportunities to pursue their range of expression. Oatmeal Creek is an independent organization legally set up as an LLC in the State of Texas.
