Well, we’re back to just being online for the time being. Not enough of us feel comfortable meeting at the Depot to make it work. So…we’re going to continue with the Zoom or gotomeeting format. This seems to work out well overall. For more info, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Either way, all are welcome to join us.
Due to the uncertainties of the Covid-19 pandemic, the in-person meeting is subject to change. We will keep you posted.
Writers of all genres and levels of experience are welcome to read their unpublished works. We do not critique content. Instead, we offer positive advice on whether the writing is effective. Each participant may read for about ten minutes and then receive a few minutes of comments. Times vary depending on how many readers we have. By meeting weekly instead of monthly like other groups, we are able to keep a degree of momentum on longer works.
Please join us!
THE 2020 STEAMBOAT WRITERS CONFERENCE HAS BEEN CANCELED OUT OF CONCERN FOR THE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF ATTENDEES AND THE UNCERTAINTIES OF THE COVID-19 SITUATION
We are disappointed to cancel knowing how much everyone looks forward to the conference each year and the tradition it has become in Steamboat for the wider writing community. But, we will be back and plans for 2021 have already begun.
The 2021 Steamboat Writers Conference is scheduled for July 23-24. Mary Taylor Young and Amanda Rea have agreed to present their workshops previously scheduled for this year’s conference. We have a great new caterer on board as well. We look forward to when we can gather again in a safe friendly environment.
Stay safe, stay well. Please follow health guidelines.

“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
