Find Your Tribe. Grow Your Tribe.

What is WORD?


We are a network of North Texas writers’ groups, founded on a simple idea: we can accomplish more together than we can individually.

From our founding in March 2016, we have already grown to include over 20 DFW-area writers organizations — and we are adding more all the time. Our map is here to help area writers find the group that best suits their needs. Our monthly meetings provide an opportunity for group leaders to share resources, problem-solve, and coordinate larger events. And our mission is as basic as they come: to connect and support North Texas writers groups, and help every writer find their tribe.

Writers in the Field — October 14–15

Writers in the Field is a hands-on, learning experience for writers of all ages and genres. We will be hosting a wide range of classes in a friendly, largely outdoor venue. Classes will include working with horses, archery, sword fighting, herbalism, how to fight like a girl and kick butt, and many, many more.

Food, drinks, and snacks will be available on site. Saturday will feature an evening concert and an optional wine-tasting.
