I went to the spring conference in Provo, UT and enjoyed great break-out sessions and met some of my favorite authors (Brandon Sanderson, Dave Farland/Wolverton, Brandon Mull, Traci Hunter Abramson, James Dashner, Sarah Eden, etc...)
They have a number of writing classes all being taught by professional authors and editors.
Jessica Day George, Sara Eden, Jennifer Moore, Traci Hunter Abramson, Lisa Mangum, Samantha Millburn, Laurie LC Lewis, Janette Rallison, Danyelle Ferguson, Rebecca Blevins, Lisa Swinton, Cathy Maxwell, Julie Ford... hopefully I didn't miss anyone.
This conference seems dominated by females. I don't see many males registered yet, but all are welcome. Although it's under the LDStorymakers name, originally started by LDS authors banding together, the conference is open to all people, regardless of religious affiliation, granted their literature is relatively clean in nature. Sorry, no erotica novels here.
(This is from the first chapter submission rules to give you an idea-- "Please be professional and sensitive that your submission aligns with the nature of the Midwest LDStorymakers Writers Conference. We do not accept entries with graphic language, extreme violence, or sex scenes." )
I'm looking forward to the conference and if you end up attending as well, be sure to stop and say hi. You can find me easily. I'm one of the three males attending.
