Desert Sleuths Annual Writers’ Conference

WriteNOW! — “Best Writers Conference in Arizona” (2020, The Writer magazine)

Registration is open

Set aside September 22-23, 2023 for WriteNow! 2023. The conference has evolved over the past three years to accommodate new challenges and opportunities. In 2020, we moved to a virtual format and gained attendees from across the US and Canada.

WriteNOW! 2023 is mostly virtual with an in-person Anthology Launch and Author Signing for SOWEST: WRONG TURN. If you’re in the greater Phoenix area, this is your chance to get out and socialize with other writers. You don’t have to be an author to join us!
