DALLAS MYSTERY WRITERS

Crime Doesn’t Pay . . . Enough!

The Dallas Mystery Writers

This is the website for the Dallas chapter of the Mystery Writers of America. We are open to writers of all genres from mystery to romance to speculative fiction and all points in between. If you want to write, or write better, you are welcome to attend any of our regular workshops. Membership in the national MWA is not necessary to attend the Dallas group meetings. There are plenty of benefits in joining the MWA, but there's no membership requirement to attend the Dallas meetings.

LOCATION:

ZOOM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Recent surge may keep meetings vir-

tual in the fall - more when the situ-

ation clarifies

The Dallas MWASW group meets the first Saturday of each month (except January) at the Olive Garden, 4240 Belt Line (at Midway), Addison, TX, 75001. Meeting time is 10:00 AM – Noon, followed by lunch. There is a $10 fee (cash only – please bring fives or ones) for the program and drinks-only attendees when we meet in person. The fee is reduced to $5.00 (cash only) for those staying for lunch.

10 AM - Meeting on Zoom!

Dena G. Weaver

Entertainment Attorney

(We hoped to meet in person, but

no such luck yet).

Ever wonder what it takes to sell your work to Hollywood or Netflix? Or what kind of legal representation is best for that arena? Our February speaker can answer those questions and much more. Ms. Weaver began her legal career at a large law firm in Dallas focusing on complex commercial litigation, securities litigation, and government enforcement proceedings. Ms. Weaver combines her M.B.A. in Business Administration, business experience, and law degree to provide a unique understanding of the issues clients face. Her current practice includes commercial litigation, legal assistance to those in the entertainment community, business and contract law, copyrights, trademarks, and bankruptcy. Ms. Weaver believes in a lawyer’s responsibility to provide pro bono services to the less fortunate through recognized organizations. She has worked with the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program and the National Immigrant Justice Center.
