We’ve been busy, both growing and writing.
So, what’s our future look like? Bright. Very bright. Don’t stare directly at it. But, you can safely check us out in a recent Writer’s Digest’s feature. Consider it a solar filter or a pinhole projector. It’s a peek at what makes DFWWW so amazing. And if you haven’t got the time to read the whole article, passing by any mirror will also do the trick.
Without further ado, here is - THE - DFW Writers’ Workshop feature in Writer’s Digest: What Makes Writing Groups Work.
A huge thanks to all of our extraordinary members, past and present, for making us a thing.
The cliff notes are as follows:
