TMI is having an open call for contributors to our blog! If you’re a Texas-loving millennial who likes to write, we’d love to hear from you.

Our blog is a platform to help make your voice heard.  You’ve got good ideas and interesting thoughts, and we want to help you get them out there!  We will work with you to publish quality blogs and empower you as a writer.

By writing for our blog, you will gain exposure and build your writing portfolio. You’ll also be given an opportunity to join periodic webinars with writing professionals, organized exclusively for TMI blog contributors.

“Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.” -Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Our readership is comprised of politically diverse millennials, most of whom are Texan, as well as some non-millennial Texans. We’re looking for content that is relevant to our generation and/or Texas, and consistent with our message of being pro-economic and social freedom.

You may want to write about something without relating it to either of these kinds of freedom—and that is perfectly okay!  Blogs need not be political either. We feature a wide variety of subject matter, which can range from current events, to personal interests, to opinion pieces, and more. You will have the freedom to write on issues that interest you most.

Click here to submit your application to join the TMI Blog Team for this academic year, and tell your friends! Applications will be accepted until September 30th. Prior blog-writing experience is welcomed but not required.

If you have any questions, please contact Sable Levy, Blog Editor, at sable@texasmillennialinstitute.org

Austin! Have you been looking for an opportunity to get together with a group to critically examine philosophical texts? Well, here's your chance. We are hosting Socratic Happy Hours to discuss readings that relate to your life.

Join us over drinks and casual discussion over George Orwell's essay, "Politics and the English Language." This essay, dating back to 1946, will likely give some insight into problems we're still facing today.

Sable will be leading us through the essay, socratic seminar style. Participants will join for an hour long discussion where we address open-ended questions based on the text, listen to each others comments and respond thoughtfully, and walk away with a better understanding of the topic at hand as well as connecting more with those who attend.

Is political speech and writing the "defense of the indefensible"? Does it make lies sound truthful and murder respectable? How can we counter what's going on and help strive for sincerity in language? We'll find out together on Wednesday, November 15th at 7:30pm. (Brew and Brew is particularly busy this month, so we shifted our date from the normaly first Thursday meeting). Your first drink will be on us! Please help us spread the word.

*This event is open to anyone interested in having conducive dialogue about the essay at hand and those that agree to come prepared to engage on the text. Please read the text beforehand; there's a link to it in the "discussion" section, and we'll provide hard copies in person.
