I just found out about another writer's conference that is filling up fast.
Cedar Fort Publishers is putting this one on. I wanted to let you all know in case you've ever wanted to attend a really affordable conference. And I definitely want you to tell them I referred you because I get a $5 discount if you do. :) The conference is held at CFI in Springville, Utah.
Here's the details which I received from Doug Johnston:
