WW, Inc. Conference

What a conference!

Our 43rd Annual Conference was held
in Gillette, Wyoming, on June 2, 3 and 4, 2017
at the Multi-Event Facilities of the Energy Hall of the CAM-PLEX.


A huge thanks goes out to our 2017 Conference presenters, agents, and editors for providing such wonderful opportunities for our attendees to hone their craft!

Faculty members Nina McConigley, Caskey Russell, Kristen Abraham, and Clay Landry inspired WW, Inc. members through engaging presentations and workshops.

Wyoming Writers, Inc. members volunteered their time to help their fellow writers: Wyoming’s current Poet Laureate Gene Gagliano led a workshop titled “Want to Write for Children?” Abbie Taylor facilitated a member panel on “What You Should Know About Self-Publishing”  with panelists Art Elser, Laurie Marr Wasmund, and Alethea Williams. Keri DeDeo and Patricia Landy delved into “Rescuing and Reviving Old Manuscripts,” and Susan Vittitow Mark navigated participants through “Blogging and More:  Sailing the Social Media Seas.” 

Publishers Nancy Curtis (High Plans Press), Pat Landy (Crystal Publishing, LLC.) and Aaron Lindsdau (Sastrugi Press in Jackson) provded chances for members to pitch their work. 

Faculty member Kristin Abraham and Susan Vittitow Mark think up new ways to crack open old (fairy) tales at the 43rd annual WW, Inc. Conference in Gillette, WY.

Nina McConigley, Caskey Russell and Clay Landry get a chance to relax and celebrate the power of story at the Saturday banquet.

Wyoming Poet Laureate Gene Gagliano, Debbie Day and John Hiski explore characterization during Gene’s workshop.


Thanks also to the Arbuckle Lodge and  the Multi-Event Facilities of the Energy Hall of the CAM-PLEX for taking such good care of us during our stay!
