Let's Get Ready to Party!

It should be no secret to anyone here that I adore the LDStorymakers writers conference, held every year in the spring. I love getting together with all my friends and just hanging out for an entire weekend, hearing great writing advice, being encouraged, and just plain having the time of my life. This year the conference is being held on April 24th and 25th at the Provo Marriott hotel, and you can learn all about it and register by clicking here.

One of the advantages of being a party animal (er, conference committee member - it's the same thing) is getting to go check out the facilities ahead of time. That's what I did last Saturday, and I must say, I'm even more stoked now than I was before.

This is the lovely Julie Wright standing in one of the classrooms. I'm not sure if you can tell from this shot, but each of the rooms are huge. For the combined sessions, we can open the dividing doors and create a room of such dynamic proportions, it's unbelievable. We'll be able to fit everyone who wants to come this year.

I swiped this picture from the hotel website - this is the lobby. Isn't that lovely?

Also swiped from the website, this is a picture of a king room at the hotel. You can reserve a room now, but be sure to mention that you need it for the Storymaker conference - otherwise they'll tell you they're full.


And this is part of the awesome conference committee - not everyone was able to make it. L-R: Rachel Nunes, me (in quite possibly one of the worst pictures ever taken of me) BJ Rowley, Julie Wright, Jaime Theler, Crystal Liechty, and our king, Jeff Savage.

We're so excited to bring you a new lineup of classes, presenters, and guest speakers. Keep your eyes on the website for the schedule, which will be up soon, and we hope you can join us in April!

Thanks for the report! I was dying to go with the rest of the committee and was seriously bummed when I couldn't. I can't WAIT for April!
