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.)

Due to the pandemic, DARA is meeting online via Zoom until further notice. We were able to get together in person for a special holiday meeting in December, 2021, between variant outbreaks.

All writers are invited to attend our meetings via Zoom. If you need the link, please contact us using the contact form below, or email us at info (at) DallasAreaRomanceAuthors (dot) com. We have waived any limit on the number of meetings a guest can attend for this year, although we hope you'd like to become a member of our organization after visiting with us.

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

Our in-person meetings are held at the Collin County Courtyard Campus, 4800 Preston Park Blvd., in Plano, Texas. Much of the group adjourns to a nearby restaurant for an optional lunch after the monthly meetings.
