Why Solstice?

I’m sitting here at my desk this morning, with windows open on either side of me. The sky is blue, the sun is bright, and the air is warm. This is the weather I’ve been waiting for all winter. It’s truly one of those remarkable days up here in the mountain tops! I plan to spend a good part of the morning writing, but I will be heading outside later to enjoy this beautiful day!

But before I do all of that, I want to invite you all to come to Solstice in July. Escape to Midway for three glorious days and learn from some of the best writers in Utah among the peaceful surroundings of The Homestead Resort. The writing talent here in Utah is deep, and we’re fortunate that so many authors are willing to share their time and expertise. The conference last year was remarkable. We had a lot of fun while improving our writing skills. The faculty, without a doubt, was top-knotch; but it was the attendees who brought so much heart and soul to our event. We met passionate writers from all walks of life. They showed up and jumped in with both feet! We had people who wanted to write about their personal experiences; whether they were raising a special-needs child, gathering family histories, or sharing stories about training horses. I think we all walked away feeling enriched and better for having been there.

And that’s what it boils down to, isn’t it? Writing is about people. Everyone has a story to tell.

If you want to tell yours, then Solstice is the place for you.
