A year ago I was struggling with my first work of fiction, “Compelled to Kill”. When I started writing, I thought it would be easy. After all, I’d written two books and numerous magazine articles on software development. But I was struggling. It was much harder than I thought. So, I attended the League of Utah Writers Spring Conference.
I met other writers. I met editors. I met agents. I took notes. I learned. I applied. Here we are a year later and I’m still struggling with the story. But the difference is, today I have an idea of what I need to do. And it started at that conference.
What followed is exciting. I got sucked into the Utah writer community and I’m happy I did. I regularly attend two different chapter meetings, Oquirrh and Infinite Monkeys. I attended a writing retreat. I went to the Fall Conference.
Then in January, I started giving presentations at chapter meetings. And today, I’m excited to announce that I will be speaking at Spring Conference. My topic there will be Unintrovertable. I’m thrilled to be chosen. And not only will this be your own opportunity to grow your skills and meet others. It will also be your chance to heckle me. Not something you get to do every day.
How do you sign up? I’m glad you asked. First, block off Saturday, April 8 on your calendar. Second, plan your route to Salt Lake Community College Taylorsville Campus. Finally, go to www.leagueofutahwriters.com and click on the Spring Conference banner right on the home page. Prices start at just $25, making this a cheap date.
Do it. Now. And I’ll see you there!
