What conferences, you ask....
The LTUE... here's the shameless plug for the conference I was supposed to be a part of. Note, they moved the dates so that it is now the same weekend as the Boise Kick-off Competition for clogging. And since I haven't figured out how to clone myself yet, I can't do both. So disappointed. But that doesn't mean you have to miss it.
Life, the Universe, & Everything XXIX, the symposium on science
fiction and fantasy held annually at BYU, will be February 17-19,
2011. We have a new venue this year: the BYU Conference Center (better
parking!). Registration is $20 in advance or $25 at the door; any
student with a current ID can get in free.
The symposium has panels, presentations, and workshops on writing,
art, media, and a lot more. The focus is science fiction and fantasy,
but a lot of the information is good for writing in general.
Guests of honor are James Dashner and Steve Keele; special guests are
David Farland, Jessica Day George, Tracy & Laura Hickman, Lisa Mangum,
L. E. Modesitt Jr., Howard Tayler, and Stacy Whitman.
And speaking of conferences that I have to miss, check out the
