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 via Zoom - 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.

Due to the high COVID-19 risk level in Dallas and surrounding counties, DFWWW’s Wednesday read and critique meetings will temporarily return to being solely online.

Because of the more dangerous Delta variant, the CDC now advises that everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated, should wear a mask in enclosed places where social distancing isn’t possible. This definitely applies to our meeting space, and the board doesn’t feel we can feasibly conduct in-person meetings and ensure the safety of our members.

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
