It's a Party! Come Celebrate the 300 Traditionally Published Books Written by DFWWW Members

The October 20 meeting could have been called 'old home night'. A number of former members attended, including a past president who helped obtain the Workshop's nonprofit status and several lifetime members.

President Russell Connor reminded everyone that next week is the celebration for the 300 traditionally published books written by DFWWW members. Please bring a potluck dish to share; the doors open at 6 p.m. Also, a special room will be reserved just for spooky Halloween reads.

Conference chairperson Jeff Posey shared several important pieces of information. First, there are only 43 spots remaining at the special discounted rate for Workshop members. After those are gone, no members-only discounts will be available.

Second, the event will be capped at 450 attendees. Considering the last conference sold out - and tickets for the 2011 DFW Writers' Conference are selling fast  - everyone is encouraged to register now.

Finally, a Gong Show-style event is planned for the conference. Attendees may submit anonymous query letters that will be read to a panel of literary agents. The agents will 'gong' when they've heard enough, and then describe what they liked and disliked about the queries. This is just a sample of the many fun and educational events that are planned.
