Whether you self-publish, have a team of editors with your traditional publisher, or are somewhere in between, we all need tools to help us write crisper and in a more polished manner. Agents, editors and publishers (as well as our readers!) appreciate well-worded, well-paced works.

Join us on Saturday, January 9th at 10:30 a.m. as multi-published, award-winning author Julie B Cosgrove reviews the self-editing program called Auto-Crit. She will explain each of the layers of the program, go through some samples of how it works, and relay her honest opinion and her experiences with using it. Then you can better decide if this tool would be beneficial to your writing career this year. Unfortunately, there won't be enough time to input pieces of each member's writing, so it is not necessary to bring a laptop.

Julie is our DFW chapter webmaster and has self-published as well as been traditionally published. She has four novels in the market place and is under contract for five more in 2016-2017. She was awarded the honor of being one of the "50 Writers You Should Be Reading in 2015" by The Author Show, and one of her short stories won second place in a statewide competition hosted by Texas Authors Association.
 She regularly contributes to several devotional websites and publications including The Journey, Light from the Word, Thoughts About God, The, Good News Daily and Faith-Filled Family Magazine. She has published six non-fiction works and is a professional workshop leader and speaker.
Julie has achieved the highest level of speaking in Toastmasters International and was awarded outstanding club secretary (2013) and outstanding club president (2015) for District 25, which encompasses an area from Abilene to Irving and from Waco to the Red River. She is also the outgoing president of the women of her denomination in North and Central Texas.

The DFW Chapter of the American Fiction Christian Writers
(fondly dubbed Ready Writers) 
meets the second Saturday of the month 
              from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 noon at

Guests are always welcomed to attend free of charge! Members pay $2.00 per meeting.

Please join us for a Dutch Treat lunch at a local restaurant nearby after the meeting to network and fellowship with other Christian writers who are serious about their gift and their craft.
