Salt Lake Writers Group

January 30, 2009 · 4 comments

Do you know of any LDS writer groups in the Salt Lake Valley area? I would very much like to have other people to meet with to critique my work, and I’d like to provide the same service for others.

If you’re interested, talk about it in the comments section.

Finding Readers

October 29, 2008

I have a YA fantasy that I am almost ready to give to readers. I have a few readers. One is published in a different genre and the other two are avid readers. My problem is that they are all related to me so I’m sure their opinion isn’t unbiased. How do I find readers […]

Just a bit of this and that. Keith/Attending LDSBA: Usually, individuals cannot come to the LDSBA convention. Some publishers schedule book signings during the convention and provide name badges for the authors, but usually only those who have a new book the publisher wants to promote. You can purchase a name badge at the door […]

Writing Organizations

July 17, 2007

Should writers join organizations like SCBWI or LDStorymakers? You don’t have to, but yes, I think you should. And RWA, and SFWA, and MWA, and LUW (or your state’s equivalent), and Latter-day Authors, and other writer groups and forums, and reader groups and forums, and… There are all sorts of groups out there that provide […]

Starting a Writers Group

December 8, 2006

You keep suggesting that we should be part of a writers critique group. I found one, but they are 60 miles away. Just how do I go about finding another one that is closer to me? Do you have some guidelines on what makes a good group and how groups should work? If you can’t […]
