Let's gather for the 46th Annual Wyoming Writers, Inc. Conference, held June 5-6, 2021, at the Lander Community and Convention Center!
After much consideration and discussion, Wyoming Writers is excited to dive into new waters with our upcoming conference this June. In keeping with our new reality, this year’s 46th conference will be hybrid, allowing us to meet in person as well as reach out to members who are more comfortable participating from their own homes. It will take place at the Lander Community Convention Center.
The conference will be held over a two day period, instead of our normal three day period allowing us to cut our costs a little in order to compensate for a smaller number of in-person attendees. We will also be offering reduced rates and a small zoom fee for the conference as well. We will begin sessions Saturday morning and end with our beloved Paddle Panel Sunday afternoon. We hope this offers members greater flexibility in regard to travel arrangements and hotel costs. Please be advised that we will be following all current health protocols in place to be as safe as possible. At this juncture, we are planning for masks and social distancing to make people as comfortable and safe as possible.
Once registration opens, it will be a first come, first serve basis for in-person attendance, allowing for 75 registrants. Registration opens March 1st with options for both in-person and virtual registrations. Sign up early! Virtual registrants will be able to attend the majority of the conference via Zoom.
This year's conference features poet Ramón García, award-winning non-fiction writer Susan J. Tweit, literary agent and author Caroline George, Wyoming columnist Bill Sniffin, USA Today bestselling author Pamela Fagan Hutchins, Jessica Kristie of Wintergoose Publishing, and Aaron Lindsau of Sastrugi Press.
