Off to a Writers’ Conference

Posted by Rampant Coyote on September 23, 2016

Today and tomorrow I’m off to the League of Utah Writers Fall Conference, down in Provo, Utah. I’m going purely as an attendee this time. There’ll be classes on the craft of writing (definitely stuff I’ll always be working on!), publishing, marketing, and business. And of course, hanging out with a lot of friends and meeting new ones. Utah has a really strong, supportive writing community, and this is a statewide event, so … it’ll be fun!

Saturday night is a banquet where I guess they announce the winners of this year’s writing contests. I participated, with my story The Thief and the Chalice. It’s up against stories by some very talented authors, many of whom I know and respect, so I don’t have any real expectations for winning. But like anything else in life, you gotta put yourself out there and take the shots. If nothing else, you learn.

That’s what I hope to do plenty of this weekend. 🙂
