Basic Info


The Dallas Area Romance Authors meets on the fourth Saturday of each month, January to October. An annual holiday celebration is held the first Saturday of December. (No meeting in November.)

DARA is meeting online via Zoom until further notice. We have been fortunate to meet in person with a virtual option a few times in the last few years -- for our annual holiday celebration.

All writers are invited to attend our meetings via Zoom. If you need the link, please contact us with the button above, or email us at info (at) DallasArea RomanceAuthors (dot) com. 

Meetings begin with a half-hour social time at 9 am, followed by a short business meeting at 9:30 which includes a Flower Presentation for our authors who have published that month. Our speaker usually begins about 10 am and talks for about 60-90 minutes. Feel free to log in when you're ready. All times listed are Central Time.

In-Person Meetings

We are working to find a new location for our in-person meetings that can also allow for virtual attendance via Zoom.
