Sorry, but why is this called '"Texas" writers' that is grammatical rubbish; surely it should be '"Texan" writers'. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 11:46, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
Texan writers established the Texas Institute of Letters more than fifty years ago, and have been feuding ever since. "The TIL is like any club with an exclusive membership--petty squabbling over who belongs and who does not is inevitable. No sooner has one group of writers struggled for acceptance than they are complaining about new members infiltrating the ranks." http://www.texasmonthly.com/ranch/readme/institute.phpTxprideforthexchromosome (talk) 16:00, 28 June 2008 (UTC)Txprideforthexchromosome
"As every Texan knows, the Lone Star State is susceptible to stereotyping. It's easy for outsiders to come in and portray over-the-top yahoos—racist redneck sheriffs and women with Big Hair Some non-Texan writers have given in to those temptations, and clichéd portraits emerge in their books. It's also true that some native authors will exaggerate local color, engaging in what Dallas Morning News critic Jerome Weeks calls 'the yee-haw factor.'" http://www.utexas.edu/utpress/excerpts/excunlop.htmlTxprideforthexchromosome (talk) 16:00, 28 June 2008 (UTC)Txprideforthexchromosome
