DFW Writers' Conference

This weekend is the 3rd Annual DFW Writers' Conference on February 26 & 27 at the American Airlines Training and Conference Center in Ft. Worth, Texas, sponsored by the DFW Writers' Workshop. This year is going to be HUGE! There will be lots of classes, vendors, agents, editors, publishers, everything! This year's keynote speaker will be New York Times Best-Selling author Sandra Brown! If you are an aspiring writer in the North Texas area, you should have already registered for this conference! I have been a member of the workshop for 4 years and currently serve on the board of directors. This year, due to our growing membership we moved the conference to a bigger venue, having held the conference for the last two years at the Grapevine Convention Center in Grapevine, TX. This is going to be a big year for the workshop and this conference is a great chance to help writers of all genres to get some expert advice and information. We at the workshop have worked really hard on this one although it hasn't been without it's obstacles. We hope this years conference will be a great one and we hope anyone not familiar with the workshop to feel free to come and visit us every Wednesday night at 7pm (soon to be at our NEW location) in Euless, TX! Hope to see you there! Follow my Twitter @ChernobogsLair for updates at the conference!

"It isn't easy. Nobody has ever done it consistently. Those who try hardest, scare it off into the woods. Those who turn their backs and saunter along, whistling softly between their teeth, hear it treading quietly behind them, lured by a carefully acquired disdain."
