The latest news on Wyoming Writers’ annual conference at the Headwaters in Dubois June 1-3:

Motel reservations: Call to ask for conference rates at either the conveniently located Stagecoach Inn 307-455-2303 or Twin Pines Lodge and Cabins 307-455-2600. These rates are in effect until May 15. If these motels book all available rooms before you call, other Dubois motels offer affordable rooms. Downtown motels include The Black Bear Inn, The Trails End, and The Branding Iron. The Rocky Mountain Lodge and Super 8 are located at the west edge of Dubois while the Longhorn Ranch and Chinook Winds are located east of town. The Longhorn Ranch and KOA offer campsites to those with campers.

Peer critique tables: Newcomers to our conference often find negotiating the Friday afternoon peer critique tables confusing. Two hints: please sign up before you show up for conference, and please be respectful of other participating writers. Instructions to sign up will appear here and in the brochure as they become available. In the meantime, click here for some general guidelines.

Editor pitches: Wyoming Writers members have a good track record of getting published by Aaron Linsdau of Sastrugi Press. Aaron will once again be taking pitches for fiction and nonfiction books at our Dubois conference.
