Dallas MWASW May Workshop and EXTRA

Join us for our May 7th workshop "Cops Undercover" with Chief Frank McElligott. Currently serving as Chief of Police, Hutchins , TX , Frank McElligott has been in Law Enforcement for 33 years. He has worked in every area, from patrol to Task Force Commander and everything in between. We will be sure and leave plenty of time for questions.

Something extra: Workshop following lunch: Writing 101

Time: 1:00pm-2:00pm Fee: $10.00

This workshop will address the needs of our beginner/intermediate writers as well as act as a fundraiser, since the instructor, our very own LaRee Bryant, has generously volunteered her time and experience. This month she will cover several basic topics, with an emphasis on how to format a manuscript.

LaRee is the author of 7 historical novels and 2 non-fiction books, and has recently finished the second book in a new cozy mystery series. She's been a writing teacher and professional editor for over 20 years and has served on the boards of several national and local writers' organizations, overseeing committees such as "Agents Standards of Practice" and "Published Authors Network."

The Dallas MWASW group meets the first Saturday of each month at Texas Land & Cattle, 812 South Central Expressway, Richardson , TX 75080 . Meeting time is 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. There is a $5.00 door fee, cash only. All who attend are invited to remain for lunch.

Thanks for posting this. I wish we could get more writing related events closer to Fort Worth.
