DFW Writers' Con: Episode VI


DFW Writers’ Workshop 2013 Conference

May 4-5 in Hurst, Texas

Editors, agents, and best-selling authors draw hundreds of attendees.

The Dallas Fort-Worth Writers’ Workshop will host its sixth annual DFW Writers’ Conference on May 4-5 at the Hurst Convention Center. Over 18 agents and editors will be in attendance and a free pitch session is included in the price of admission. (Extra pitches are available for a low fee.)

This year, the conference will feature three prominent authors as its keynote speakers:

  • Deborah Crombie – New York Times bestselling author of the Duncan Kinkaid/Gemma James mystery series, including her recently released, NO MARK UPON HER.

  • Mike Capuzzo – Pulitzer Prize nominee and New York Times bestselling nonfiction author of THE MURDER ROOM and CLOSE TO SHORE.

  • David Corbett – Author of contemporary fiction and the non-fiction writing book, THE ART OF CHARACTER.

In addition to more than 50 informative classes and workshops on the craft and business of writing, the conference will once again host panels such as the “Query Letter Gong Show,” which features agents who decide to request queries or give them a loud gong.

“Our conference theme this year is ‘No Word Wasted,’” says Katy Roberts, Director of the 2013 DFWWW conference. “Our group gives feedback for your best possible writing … to make every word count. We hope writers will take advantage of the resources and networking opportunities at our conference!”

Early bird discount registration for the conference ends February 4th.
