Dallas/Fort Worth has a strong literary community. DFW Writers Workshop is working to bring it together in one place.

Read and Critique. Book Signings. Conferences. Readings. Screenings. Write-Ins. Launches.

It's all here, and it's all for you.

    Writers Guild of Texas Short Story Plot Development Writing Clinic with AMBER ROYER

    January 18, 2021 7 PM to 8:30 PM


    We know. These days, the word “clinic” simply isn’t appealing, and neither is the word “plot,” but you’re thinking about it all wrong. The type of healing we’re offering to jump-start 2021 is to help with organization, the flow of ideas, and identification of problem areas in story structure– your story plot!


    Amber Royer is back to start WGT and the writing community on the right track. Many of you asked for Amber to return after her September 26, 2020, mini-workshop “Plotting a Powerful Short Story.” WGT heard you, and so did Amber.

    Sign-up to participate and show everyone how you’ve used the techniques that you learned from her workshop. If you missed her in September of last year, this is your chance to submit a question to an expert.

    We will only have an hour and a half, so Amber needs your help to make sure that you get the most out of the plotting clinic.

    Submit your completed registration form along with your question by 11:59 PM on January 16 by clicking here REGISTRATION FORM.

    We look forward to starting 2021 with you!

What motivates us and why is it important? Join the discussion and learn how to incorporate memoir in your writing life. Pavorites Following YouDreams January 19, 2021 7:00 PM 8:30 PM DAWG Zoom Meeting Rm www.dallaswriters.org'As we struggle through tumultuous days (or years as the case may now be), we writers often do what we do best. We write. We journal. We record and document the life that we journey through. Is it for us? Is it for our future family members? Is it for posterity? Is it for publication and potential book sales?

    Sometimes it’s a bit of all of it. Join us as we chat about memoir writing and how it relates to us. We’ll talk about what memoir is, various forms of it, some concerns to be aware of, and how to incorporate memoir into our writing life.
