SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2017
Join the Houston Writers Guild for our first annual Masquerade Gala. The event will start at 7pm with a sit down plated dinner accompanied by light jazz. Following a short message from the leadership, the event will flow into a night of dancing, giveaways, and culminate in a costume contest around 11 pm. As an official 501c3 organization, your ticket price, your membership dues, and any donations you choose to give to your Guild are tax deductible.
Come have fun, dance, dress up in your finest or come in costume, and support your Guild. There will be a cash bar for those who would like to partake.

Full line up and topics can be found at this event’s page.
Announcing Tier 2 Critique Groups
Houston Writers Guild announces a new level of critique groups for authors with novels that are complete but not ready for publication. This second tier is a more intense mutual editing experience than that obtained in most groups.
