Mission

We help writers of all genres and experience levels to produce and promote professionally published work. We do this by providing read-and-critique sessions, educational activities, ongoing author support, networking opportunities and a welcoming, inclusive community.

 

Hello and welcome to the DFW Writers’ Workshop!

We are a group of writers dedicated to helping each other advance our writing success. We meet weekly, currently on-line (due to COVID-19), where we read our works-in-progress and receive suggestions on how to make them better. We cover all genres of writing, from literary fiction to sermons, and everything in between: fiction and non-fiction, memoir and instructional, fantasy and hard-boiled. Whatever you write, we would love to have you join us!

Meetings are on Wednesday evenings, with revised summer hours: social time begins at 7:00 pm and the plenary session starts at 7:15 pm. If you would like to join us, scroll down the page, where you can click on the RSVP and tell us you’re coming. Once you do that, you will receive an email with a link for our next meeting.

Part of the joy of DFWWW is the camaraderie we share, the joy of participating in others’ success, and the encouragement we give each other to keep going. Every week, I learn something new, and I expect you can too. I hope to see you there!

Best regards,

LeAnn Robinson
President
DFW Writers Workshop

    PUT YOUR WORK INTO THE WORLD

    Writer | Editor | Teacher   Mag Gabbert Talks Publication

    Submitting individual pieces, such as stories, essays, poems, and keeping careful records can set you on the right path toward publishing a full-length book and compiling a healthy writing résumé. You may not want to skip steps in this process. Do you want to know why? What are the procedures for sending out written work, and do I include them in a cover letter? Who is publishing what and where?

    Let’s understand the process of becoming a published writer and get our written works into the world. Join poet, essayist, and creative writing instructor, Mag Gabbert in a discussion about publication. You may learn that you have been missing an important step or two.

    MAG GABBERT holds a Ph.D. in creative writing from Texas Tech University and an MFA from The University of California at Riverside. Her essays and poems can be found in 32 Poems, Pleiades, The Rumpus, Thrush, The Massachusetts Review, Waxwing, The Pinch, Stirring, Carve Magazine, Sugar HouseReview, and The Nervous Breakdown, and many other journals. Mag is the author of Minml Poems, a chapbook of visual poetry and nonfiction (Cooper Dillon Books, 2020). She has received poetry fellowships from Idyllwild Arts and Poetry at Round Top. Mag currently teaches creative writing at Southern Methodist University and for Writing Workshops Dallas. She also serves as the interview editor for Underblong Journal. www.maggabbert.com
