In 2003, the founders of NTSFW-Pat, Shawn, & Rick (also members of the DFW Writers Workshop) realized the need for a speculative fiction-specific workshop where the authors understood the spec fic genre’s tropes. We began meeting in members’ homes until Barnes & Noble graciously offered their space for our monthly meetings. After the workshop, we usually end up at BJ’s across the parking lot.
