Saturday, April 13th | 1:30pm-5:00pm

Start: Deep Ellum Art Company


Essayist Kendra Greene serves as our guide on a writing adventure through historic Deep Ellum. Learn some history you never knew, get a close-up look at the great contemporary art that covers the streets, and hear the sounds of music and humanity unlike anywhere else in Dallas. Throughout this walk, Kendra will draw our attention to Deep Ellum’s historic sites and challenge us to write our own creative response to Dallas’s most vibrant neighborhood, interspersed with adult refreshment stops in some of Deep Ellum’s most iconic locations. At the end, we will contribute our own flavor through impromptu street corner readings.

The walk will start and end outside the Deep Ellum Art Company, 3200 Commerce Street, Dallas, 75226 (street side parking available along Commerce, between Murray and Trunk). After the walk, stick around at Deep Ellum Art Co. for a poetry reading at 5pm as part of WordSpace’s annual Lit Hop festival.

Wear comfortable shoes and a wide-brimmed hat. Bring your notebook and some extra dollars to cover your refreshments (not included in the fee).
