Last summer, after Austin Writers' League administrators discovered that a surprising 43% of its members don't even live in Austin, it suggested a name change to Writers' League of Texas. But in this case more than a name was being changed; the entire scope of the organization had to be rethought. Former Executive Director Jim Bob McMillan, in addition to being an all-around workhorse, successfully saw the state's largest writing organization through a risky growth by taking the pulse of the League in his unassuming, inclusive way.
