The Return of First Draughts

May 11, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm CDT

First Draughts literary mixer is back! Held monthly(ish) at The Wild Detectives and hosted by Writing Workshops Dallas and The Writer’s Garret, First Draughts is a great place to meet other DFW writers, talk shop, and connect.

Join us for LitTalk at Whose Books in their new location on Davis at 7pm, then stroll over to Wild Detectives for a beverage afterwards for First Draughts! We’ll raffle off gift certificates to Wild Detectives, enjoy drink specials, and talk reading, writing, and everything in between. We’d love for you to be part of the thriving literary community at one of our favorite bookstores in town.

Our mission is to bring writers out of the wilderness and into community. In fact, we were founded on the basis that having a literary community is essential to the life of any creative writer. Finding a community is an important step that leads most writers to take their work and craft more seriously. Both The Writer’s Garret and Writing Workshops Dallas are proud to be part of the thriving literary scene in Dallas, and we hope to see you at First Draughts!
