For the last four years, I've been attending a fantastic writing conference sponsored by the LDS Storymakers. This years conference will be at the Provo Marriott (the hotel, not the place where they shoot those orange orbs into baskets). If you are a writer, I cannot express enough how beneficial this conference can be to your writing skills. There are tons of highly informative classes, lots of like-minded people to meet, and tremendous speakers. This year's special guest is none other than the great and award-winning author Anne Perry. And to hear her keynote address, you don't have to be a writer or go to the whole conference. Tickets are available to hear just her. There are several other special guests, too, including agents (the writer kind, not the secret kind) and editors: Michael Bourret, Hannah Bowman, Victoria Curran, Alyssa Henkin, and Michelle Witte.

There is also a promotional contest called 'Show Your Love'. If you are attending the conference and want a chance to have dinner with the special guests, as well as a chance to get some feedback on your writing, let people know about this conference. You can find out more about this contest here: http://ldstorymakerauthors.blogspot.com/2013/02/ldstorymakers-2013-show-your-love.html
Don't just think about it, do it. It's well worth your time.
