Has winter got you down? If you live in the Treasure Valley in Southwest Idaho, it may have. Be assured, Spring 2017 is just around the corner. That means the Second Annual ICAN Spring Writers’ Symposium and Writing Contest is also just around the corner. If you are thinking about writing, but don’t know where to begin. We can help. Perhaps you already write, but need assistance with publishing. We can help.

Why does the Idaho Creative Authors Network sponsor events such as this one?
We recognized a need to bring affordable and convenient writing opportunities to the Treasure Valley. There is a lot of talent and experience right here. We strive to bring those with publishing and marketing experience in contact with those who are just starting out in their writing careers by sponsoring local events on a semi-annual basis.

The Spring Writers’ Symposium and Writing Contest includes both writing instruction and writing contests for published and non-published authors. The symposium promises to be packed with information and interaction for beginning and established writers seeking to improve their writing and marketing skills.  A networking luncheon will give attendees the opportunity to interact with fellow writers and presenters who include Author and Texas Writing Academy Participant, Carol Green Kjar, along with ICAN authors JoEllen Claypool, Carol Green, Phyllis Vavold Nettleton, and Sheila Eismann. Workshop topics include Strengthening Your Writing, Manuscript Development, Cover Design, and much more.  Come prepared to engage in a writing activity to implement what you have learned!  The day caps off with an Awards Ceremony for winners of the writing contests.

The event will be held Saturday, March 4th from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. at the Parma High School Commons Room, 137 Panther Lane, Parma, Idaho 83660.The deadline for writing contest submissions is February 18.
