Writing Workshops Dallas offers multi-level writing workshops in Dallas, TX, but also offers manuscript editing, MFA Application Prep, and individual coaching and critique to writers located anywhere. All Writing Workshops Dallas instructors are professional writers, teachers and editors, who have taught at major universities and attended top MFA programs across the country.
