It’s hard to believe that we’re fast approaching the sixth installment of the DFW Writers’ Conference, which started with humble beginnings in 2008 and has grown at an incredible rate in the years since. Each year we’ve added something new to make the conference a bigger and better event and to continue to meet our goal of delivering a better conference at a better price. This year we up the ante again, with a new focus on inviting publishers as well as literary agents, and bringing you not one, not two, but three distinguished keynote speakers.
We’re proud to announce that our keynotes this year are Michael Capuzzo, David Corbett and Deborah Crombie.
Capuzzo is the author of six books including New York Times bestsellers The Murder Room and Close to Shore. He’s been nominated for the National Book Award, the Edgar Award and the Pulitzer Prize.
Corbett is a former San Francisco private investigator who has penned four critically acclaimed novels: The Devil’s Redhead, Done for a Dime, Blood of Paradise and Do They Know I’m Running?
Crombie, a Texas native who spent many years living in the United Kingdom, is the award-winning author of 14 mystery novels about British crimefighting partners Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James, most recently No Mark Upon Her, Necessary as Blood and Where Memories Lie.
We’re also delighted to have Lou Anders among our editor ranks this year. Anders is editorial director at Pyr, an imprint of Prometheus Books. He’s the winner of the 2011 Hugo Award for best editor of long-form fiction.
