Here's a list of writers' conferences in and around Texas for 2013. I'm not promoting any of these events, just offering what I hope is a helpful summary.
March 1 - 2 North Louisana Storytellers & Authors of Romance
April 5 - 6 Houston Writers Guild
April 26 - 27 Northeast Texas Writers Organization
May 2 - 4 Oklahoma Writers' Federation Inc.
May 4 - 5 DFW Writers' Conference
June 10 - 14 West Texas A&M Writers' Academy
June 21 - 23 Writers' League of Texas
July 12 - 14 LexiCon
July 14 - 21 Taos (New Mexico) Summer Writers' Conference
Aug 29 - Sept 2 World Science Fiction Convention
Oct 4 - 6 FenCon
How did I compile this list? Google.
Did I miss some events? Probably, but not intentionally.
What were my criteria? The webpage had to mention 2013 dates, even if there weren't a lot of details. For example, there's a conference in Arkansas, but it didn't have any 2013 info.
Have I personally attended all of these events? Nope.
Have I attended some of them? Yep. I went to the Writers' League conference once. I've gone to the DFW Writers' Conference four times (but honesty-in-blogging I'm a member of the DFW Writers' Workshop, so I get a nice discount); and I've attended FenCon four times.
Are all of these conferences? Nope. I included West Texas A&M because I've heard it's money well spent; World Science Fiction because I'm excited to be going, and FenCon because they offer the best danged writers' workshop I've ever attended.
