Writers Bloc

The Writers Bloc is a semi-annual program offered by the DFW Writers Workshop. Our meetings combine a one-hour class on the craft or business of writing taught by a top-notch professional followed by a networking social-hour.

We believe in supporting every writer at every stage of their career and fostering connections within and between our local writing communities. Best of all, we are free and open to the public. Join us!

Pitching for Success: What to know, what to say, what not to say

presented by Rosemary Clement

An informative and fun hour with Rosemary Clement about pitching. No, not the baseball kind. We mean putting the most compelling elements of your novel into a pitch or blub that will grab the interest of agents, editors, and readers. Rosemary will tell you what’s important to know about your book, what’s vital to include in your pitch, and a few things to leave out. Good for any stage of the creative process, this class is especially helpful for anyone preparing for upcoming writing conferences, such as DFWCON 2021.


For those of you who are unfamiliar with Rosemary, she’s the author of seven amazing novels, including the Prom Dates from Hell series, Splendor Falls, and Texas Gothic writing as Rosemary Clement-Moore, and No Good Deed as Kara Connolly. She’d love for you to check out her website to get more info! Rosemary Clement
