What we're about

The Dallas chapter of the Nonfiction Authors Association (http://www.nonfictionauthorsassociation.com) meets every fourth Thursday of the month from 7 to 9 p.m. at Deep Vellum Books (http://deepvellum.com/) located near downtown Dallas at 3000 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75226.


The Dallas NFAA is an excellent organization to join no matter where you are on your nonfiction writing journey.

Walk-ins are welcome, and first-time attendees get in free.

Every meeting welcomes a featured speaker on a topic immediately applicable to nonfiction authors:

• Getting published

• Self-publishing vs. traditional publishing

• Author branding

• The economics of publishing

• Public speaking

• Networking

• Self-editing

• and more.

Time is also built in to get to know each attendee. When time permits, we also have a mastermind session where a few attendees share their current roadblocks to seek help from the group. Books and other literary goodies are often given away at the end of every meeting too.


The Nonfiction Authors Association is a national community with over 14,000 experienced and aspiring writers of business, self-development, health, reference, memoir and other nonfiction books.

Our NFAA local chapters focus on the business side of writing, publishing and promoting nonfiction books.
