Mission

DFWWW Wednesday Meetings and COVID

 

Dear DFWWW Members,

In recent weeks, the workshop board has been monitoring updates from the CDC and Tarrant County and discussing our response to the outbreak of COVID-19. Our concern is to keep our Wednesday night critique safe for our members, as well as to support the community in limiting the transmission of the virus.

Things have progressed quickly—what’s appropriate for Wednesday’s meeting is out of date by Thursday afternoon. For the time being, in-person DFWWW meetings will be suspended until we get the all clear. 

We are conducting meetings online, including read-and-critique. DFWWW has met continuously for over 40 years, and we don’t plan to break that streak.

Our weekly meetings are a huge factor in the success of the DFW Writers’ Workshop and our members. Regular meetings build a regular habit—a habit of prioritizing professional and creative goals. Every Wednesday night we critique and learn, we inform and support, we connect to other writers and go home inspired.

Members receive instructions in email on how to attend any virtual meetings. Our goal is to make them as easy to access as possible, even if you’ve never done it before.

To make sure you don’t miss any news or updates on how we’re proceeding during the COVID-19 epidemic, you may want to log in on the DFWWW website, go to your account page (click on the profile pic at the upper right corner and select “My account” from the pull-down menu), and make sure under “Contact Info” you have checked “Receive emails.”

Until it’s safe and responsible to resume meetings in person, we hope to replicate the magic in an online format. (No pressure!) Bear with us, watch your email and social media for updates, take care of yourselves, and keep writing.

Best regards,

DFWWW President's Signature

Rosemary Clement
