Writing for Charity 2012

Mark your calendars. On March 17, 2012, Utah children's authors will be donating their time to host and present a writer's conference that will not only help aspiring authors to improve their craft, but proceeds from the conference's low $45 registration fee will be used to help place children's books in the hands of underprivileged children.  Hosted at the Provo City Library, the conference will be a day full of interactive break-out sessions, professional critiques and a silent auction of donated autographed books, critiques, and even lunch with famous authors..

The Writing for Charity conference was originally founded by Shannon Hale in 2008, who will be participating along side an array of other children's authors including Brodi Ashton, Kristen Chandler, Kristyn Crow,  Bree Despain, Sharlee Glenn, Mette Ivie Harrison, Tess Hilmo, Clint Johnson, Matt Kirby, Kristen Landon, Lisa Mangum, Janette Rallison, J. Scott Savage, Emily Wing Smith, myself and others.
