Another successful DFW Writers Conference wraps up!

Thanks to everyone who helped put the 2009 DFW Writers Conference together, and to everyone who participated. It ran even more smoothly than last year's, and was jam-packed with great educational content for writers. We saw a lot of smiling faces!

Planning for the next one has already begun. The 2010 conference will be April 10 & 11, again at the City of Grapevine Convention Center.

Early bird registration starts now! You can register for only $125 until May 31, 2009. Click here to register.

DFW Writers' Conference proceeding as planned

Organizers of the DFW Writers Conference have released the following statement:

Current news headlines may have some of you concerned. We are monitoring news reports closely. Health officials are advising everyone to be aware of the situation and practice good hygiene, but not to be alarmed. As of 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, last-minute conference registrations are still coming in. The conference will proceed as planned. Hand sanitizers will be available at the convention center.

Helping hands needed this Wednesday at 6 p.m. to prepare conference packets

The DFW Writers' Conference is almost here! We need volunteers for a final push to prepare. So it's time for our annual Packet Stuffing Party. We'll be getting together at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29 at the Ruth Millican Center.

How can you help?

  • By stuffing tote bags

  • By rehearsing the registration process

  • By handling little tasks

  • By eating free pizza

That's right, those who show up at 6 to help will be fed!

See you there.
