David Smith who spoke with the group this past month is hosting the Utah Writers Conference in October and they are looking for speakers/authors.

HWG stands for "Heritage Writer's Guild" which we are a division of the League of Utah Writers, (LUW). If you could include anything that would let your published and experienced writers/speakers know about our October 12 - 13 conference/workshop, for them to contact me and send me specific areas of expertise/experience, that would be awesome! We are also looking to host a book signing even for all published authors who are in attendance and publicly invite our community to meet with authors and talk to them about their books/writing/etc.
I appreciate your help and certainly look forward to having you meet our writers and share your information!!
