kanab writer's conference

Do you have a great idea for a class? We want to hear from you!

We’re looking for classes on every level of writing. We’re interested in all types of writing and storytelling, whether it’s genre, nonfiction, or niche like photojournalism, ghostwriting, etc. We’re also looking for classes that go through each step of self-publication. 

Welcome to the Kanab Writers Conference

Our Fall Conference will be held on

Thursday, October 11, through Saturday, October 13, 2018.

We’ll be updating our site to be ready for registration on April 1st, so check back again soon for more information.

Self-Publishing Anthology Seminar

On Friday, October 12, come join us for a self-publishing experience like no other. We’ll spend the afternoon workshopping and creating an anthology with submission from conference attendees that will be available for purchase after the conclusion of the conference.


Plein Air Hike and Free Write

Come and write in the beautiful surroundings of Red Rock country during our Plein Air hike. We’ll be heading out on the Bunting Trail with notebooks and pens. Submit your writing from the hike for our anthology or get a jump on a different project.
