We help and encourage North Texas writers of all genres and experience levels to produce professional quality writing suitable for publication. We do this by providing read and critique sessions, educational activities, networking opportunities and a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere.
DFWWW and the Northwest Branch Library are teaming up to bring you that much closer to finishing your book.
Come join us every Monday in the month of November to write, write and write some more.
A DFWWW member will be present to answer any questions you might have about NaNoWriMo, our organizations and writing in general. We will also have a prize drawing at the end of the evening for a job well done.
Sharpen your pencils. Crack those knuckles. We cannot wait to see you there.
The Workshop meets EVERY Wednesday, regardless of holidays or weather. We welcome visitors to come to any of these regular weekly meeting. There is no need to notify us in advance, just show up! It has been years since a meeting was canceled for any reason.
We meet at 7 p.m. at the Simmons Center in Euless, TX and rarely go past 10:00 p.m. Many continue on after the meeting at a nearby IHOP on 183 and Westpark/Murphy in Euless.
Three DFW Writers' Workshop members have received outstanding reviews from several publications this month. Horror Underground on Russell Connor's GOOD NEIGHBORS: A lot of books and authors are compared to Stephen King, especially fiction that showcases the dark side of the human condition. Good Neighbors is easy to compare as such, but I think that Connor’s writing has enough of its own voice that it doesn’t need the comparison. Click to read the full review. Austin American-Statesman on Melissa Lenhardt's STILLWATER: A JACK McBRIDE MYSTERY: Melissa Lenhardt of North Texas lays the foundation for a dangerous, romantic and seedy world with the first in a series, “Stillwater: A Jack McBride Mystery”...You want to know what is going to happen and how it’s going to go down.
