2018 Writers' League of Texas Board of Directors Slate of Candidates



 Betty Lew Bewley

I am a native born West Texan. I graduated with a B.A. in Speech Pathology at Texas Tech University, an M.A. in Psychotherapy at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, and an M.A. in Theological Studies at the Lutheran Seminary of the Southwest in Austin. Other interests and volunteer positions include working at the University of Texas in Austin at the Vertebra Paleontology Lab and the Texas Archeology Research Lab due to my appreciation of history and ancient relics. I am a member of the Writers’ League of Texas and the Texas Archaeological Society. My inspiration for writing comes from long walks on my five acres in Spicewood, Texas, alongside the Pedernalis River where creatures are often seen walking the labyrinth I built. Favorite hobbies are writing, hiking, reading, traveling, creating textile art, and spending time with my eight grandchildren.

Mia Zozobrado

Hello! My name is Mia Zozobrado, and I live in Austin, TX. This May I graduated from Southwestern University in Georgetown with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature; and I am now working as an admission counselor for my alma mater. While I was in undergrad I had the honor of interning with Writers' League of Texas, and I now look forward to supporting the League in future endeavors as a board member. I've had a passion for writing since a young age, and I am eager for the opportunity to learn more about the craft from fellow WLT members. I greatly appreciate being considered for this opportunity.
