Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you have to be a member of MWA to attend?
A: Absolutely not. There are benefits to membership, but anyone and everyone is welcome at the Dallas Mystery Writers MWA meetings

Q: Are meetings expensive?
A: We think they're a great bargain. For a $5 door fee, you get to meet other mystery writers, all willing to talk about mysteries, thrillers, suspense, and the like. Lunch is optional, but we strongly encourage everyone to stay and visit. The lunch menu at Texas Land and Cattle starts at under $7, a great price for great food.


Q: What kind of speakers do you have at meetings?
A: We alternate between legal topics, such as police chiefs, medical examiners, forensic technicians, and lawyers, and writing topics. These speakers include agents, editors, successful authors telling how they do it, technology used in writing, and two yearly critique meetings.

Q: Can I get audio recordings of these sessions?

A: Yes, we sell CDs that include speakers from previous meetings. Catch? You have to come buy them in person, and stay for the meeting. See how sneaky mystery writers can be?
