DFWCon wants to extend a hand to diverse #ownvoice authors who have a story to tell the world and are working to start or revitalize their writing career.
At DFWCon, you’ll get to attend a variety of helpful writing and business classes. You’ll hear inspiring keynote speeches by successful authors. You’ll be able to take part in hands-on interactive workshops and get detailed critique of your work. You’ll meet 14 literary agents who are flying in from around the country to meet writers just like you. And just as importantly, you’ll join the friendly, supportive community that has become DFWCon’s trademark!
If you can get to downtown Dallas on May 6 and 7, 2017, apply for a chance at attending the conference free! Winning applicants this year will be chosen by agent Quressa Robinson of D4EO Literary Agency, and will receive a complimentary registration to the conference. Lunch on both days is included. You’ll also be able to sign up for a 10-minute one-on-one consultation with a literary agent, and you’ll be able to attend our networking reception Saturday night, which will be attended by our entire lineup of agents.
Apply no later than midnight Sunday, April 2 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
1. Name, age, address and a phone number.
2. Tell us what makes you an #ownvoice author and why you would like to attend DFWCon.
3. Why do you write and what would you like to achieve with your writing?
4. Please include a writing sample, no more than 5 pages long, pasted into your email. Writing sample can be fiction or nonfiction and can be about anything. Keep in mind that the idea is for us to get a sense of who you are as an #ownvoice author.
Good luck! We look forward to reading your work.
