This weekend was the DFW Writers' Workshop's annual DFW Writers' Conference and it was bigger and better than EVER! It was held at the brand-new Hurst Conference Center in Hurst, Texas. The featured keynote speaker was international best-selling thriller author of The Sigma Force Series: James Rollins. The conference also featured special guests, authors Lori Wilde and Jodi Thomas. Other guests in attendance were several prominent literary agents including Writers House LLC and JABberwocky Literary Agency. Also in attendance were authors and fellow DFW Writers' Workshop members Rosemary Clement-Moore, Russell C. Connor, and A. Lee Martinez who presented a number of classes and panels. This year's theme was "The Changing Face of Publishing". Since our goal has always been to put on the best possible conference, we realize the publishing industry has gone through many changes as well as the rise of self-published authors and small-press agencies. The conference was a great opportunity to meet and mingle with many fellow writers of all genres and experience levels and also to meet and network with literary agencies and publishing companies. I have been a member of the DFW Writers' Workshop for almost 6 years and I've gotta say this was our best conference so far. The venue was huge and perfect for our needs and the classes and agent pitches were very successful too! To my fellow workshop members who helped make this conference great, I am thankful for all your efforts! See ya'll next year!
