Monthly Meeting
If you're new and plan to join us, please read the Pages at the Meetup, so you know what to expect. You're still welcome even if you don't :) As for parking, make sure to turn on Mira Vista and park in the eastern parking lot. Use the East Entrance that faces Mira Vista, go upstairs to room 233. There is a bridge connecting the buildings on their campus. If you don’t use the eastern entrance from the Mira Vista parking lot, it may be difficult to find the meeting room. We don’t want you to get lost, so here’s a map of their campus (http://www.standrewumc.org/campus-maps). Mira Vista would be on the right side of the map.

What we're about

Welcome to the Dallas Christian Writers Guild Meetup site.

If you're interested in joining our Meetup group, please come to one of our monthly critique meetings first.

The monthly meetings are the main enterprise of the Dallas Christian Writers Guild and the reason we have a presence here at Meetup. We use this site to let others know we exist and to communicate with our participants.

Please check out our Pages for details about our monthly meetings.

The monthly meetings focus on writing critique with publication as the goal. We discuss all topics related to the art and business of writing and spend the bulk of the time critiquing each others work.

We exist to provide:

† Education on writing and marketing skills

† A place where Christian writers find encouragement and support

† Effective critique to help writers improve their work

Dallas Christian Writers Guild was established as Southwestern Christian Writers Guild in 1986 to give Christian writers a place to fellowship, opportunities to learn the skills and business of writing, and a venue for getting work critiqued for publication.

Whether you want to write fiction or nonfiction, trad publishing or indie, you’ll find someone whose passion for the written word matches your own. Our members write for both secular and Christian markets, with works ranging from genre thrillers to devotionals. If you’re a beginner, you’ll learn the ropes of a freelance career. You’ll learn how to approach editors and publishers. You’ll benefit from the expertise and advice of professional writers who started out just like you: with a love for writing and a commitment to be a writer.

The advanced writer will find others who have been published and will enjoy networking with fellow Christian writers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. You’ll get input on your novel, poetry, articles, personal essays, nonfiction book, or whatever you’ve chosen to write.

Join us each month as we connect through our love for Christ and writing.

“A person’s words can be life-giving water; words of true wisdom are as refreshing as a bubbling brook.”
Proverbs 18:4
