DALLAS MYSTERY WRITERS

Crime Doesn’t Pay . . . Enough!

The Dallas Mystery Writers

This is the website for the Dallas chapter of the Mystery Writers of America. We are open to writers of all genres from mystery to romance to speculative fiction and all points in between. If you want to write, or write better, you are welcome to attend any of our regular workshops. Membership in the national MWA is not necessary to attend the Dallas group meetings. There are plenty of benefits in joining the MWA, but there's no membership requirement to attend the Dallas meetings.

LOCATION:

ZOOM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

tual in the fall - more when the situ-

Questions and Answers

(We hoped to meet in person, and

we may be able too soon).

HAPPY 4th of JULY EVERYBODY!! We know that many of you are out boating, camping, attending cookouts, or just generally fooling around for the 4th so we’re doing something a bit different and just for fun! We’re going to establish a basic storyline then ask each person to add a line or couple of lines to the story. Then the next person adds more and so on, and so on. We’ll either end with a best seller or the weirdest, wackiest story ever conceived. So, c’mon and stretch your imagination. This is the opportunity to air some of those bizarre and/or kooky ideas you’ve had floating around in your heads. But wait…there’s more: If you’ve got a story idea, but you can’t quite seem to make it work, we’ll help. If you’ve got a paragraph or a page you think might benefit from a critique, we’ll help. If you have a question about characterization, plotting, the state of publishing, if Amazon will outlive us all or the price of tea in China…we’ll help. In other words, it’s your basic open forum.
