DFWCon 2024


No. 1 in Texas

DFWCon was named the best writing conference in Texas by The Writer, the oldest magazine in America for writers.

DFWCon is a labor of love put on by DFW Writer’s Workshop, a 100% volunteer-led, nonprofit organization with the following tagline: “Writers helping writers since 1977.” We are here to serve, and we know we’re not alone.

As a sponsor of DFWCon 2024, you will not only help us in our mission, but you will:

  • Expose your brand to over 300+ attendees, all of whom find influence online and in print with the written word.
  • Benefit from the word of mouth from our larger community.

  • Reach a diverse audience of thought leaders.

  • Showcase your corporate support for the arts.

We have many sponsorship opportunities. You can sponsor a classroom so that it bears your company’s name and appears in the schedule. You can help us offset the cost of our swag bags with your branding. You can become the patron and namesake of one of our evening social mixers. Maybe you have your own sponsorship ideas (photo booth, raffle prizes, BookTok, WiFi, or cell phone charging stations). To learn more about sponsorships, email us directly at info @ dfwcon. org.

All sponsors will be prominently featured online and on our mainstage screens throughout the event.

Rose: The End of Forever, The House of Long Ago, The Lake of Learning, and The Museum of Mysteries, all Cassiopeia Vitt tales. 

History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel. It’s his passion, one he shares with his wife, Elizabeth, which led them to create History Matters, a foundation dedicated to historic preservation. 

He has been chosen both the Florida and Georgia Writer of the Year. He’s also an emeritus member of the Smithsonian Libraries Advisory Board. In 2010, a NPR survey named The Templar Legacy one of the top 100 thrillers ever written.

Steve was born and raised in Georgia, graduating from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University. He was a trial lawyer for 30 years and held elective office for 14 of those years. He is a founding member of International Thriller Writers—a group of nearly 6,000 thriller writers from around the world—and served three years as its co-president.
