Spring Writers' Symposium and Writing Contest


The Third Annual ICAN Spring Writers’ Symposium and WritingContest will be held in Parma, Idaho on March 17, 2018. The event 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.

Presenters include ICAN members, Phyllis Vavold Nettleton, JoEllen Claypool, Sheila Eismann, and Carol Green. Guest speaker to be announced! Come prepared to engage in a writing activity to practice what you have learned! Specific topic titles will be announced before the end of January 2018!

The day caps off with an awards ceremony for winners of the writing contest. The writing contest is optional (not required for attendees), but we encourage participation as it is an opportunity to hone your writing skills. The  contest submission deadline is February 24, 2018.

Idaho Creative Authors Network assists new authors in publishing and marketing their work. This blog post from Elaine Oostra, an attendee at our first event, relates how ICAN has helped her publish two books.
