Austin Bat Cave logo

Austin Bat Cave (or ABC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides children and teenagers (ages 6-18) with opportunities to develop their creative and expository writing skills. We connect a diverse population of young writers and learners with a vibrant community of adult volunteers in Austin.

Executive Director Katie Angermeier Haab received her MFA degree from the Texas State Creative Writing program. Many of our current students choose to volunteer with Bat Cave, from their annual Carnival o' Pizza fundraiser in November to regular weekly classes at Austin schools.
