DFWWW is Moving to a New Location

The February 16 business meeting (rescheduled due to the earlier bad weather) saw a large crowd, which included four visitors and four new members.

In the surprise news of the night, President Donna Lasko announced the City of Euless has asked the Workshop to move. The City plans to turn the Ruth Milli­can Cen­ter into a museum. DFWWW will relocate in March to the Simmons Building, also in Euless. Members are needed on Saturday, March 12, to help pack over 20 years of books, awards, and other items.

In less surprising - but equally important - news, Kenneth Ingle signed a contract with Books in Motion for two, new audio books. Rosemary Clement-Moore displayed the advanced reader copy of her newest work Texas Gothic. Kendall Furlong took home a prize in the Tale Hook writing contest. Conference chairperson Jeff Posey announced that registration for the 2011 DFW Writers' Conference ends next Thursday, February 24. Stephen Manning advised room monitors are needed to keep the classes running well. Workshop members are reminded that they must volunteer for a few hours during the conference as part of receiving a discount on the registration fee.  

Finally, A. Lee Martinez received a letter from a young fan who credited Martinez' work with encouraging his brother to read more. Now that's one reason why all of us are in the crazy business of publishing - to touch the lives of others.
