We are looking forward to this year’s Craft of Writing Conference and hope you will join us. We will once again be at the OSU Center for Poets & Writers and are grateful for their continued support. 

Our theme this year is The Power of Storytelling and we will highlight Native American storytelling and Native American writers will be presenting one track of sessions on Saturday. We will have even more breakout sessions and are adding a second day on Sunday that will be a standalone focus on publishing and marketing your work. You’ll be able to register for just one or both days – whichever fits your needs best! 

Registration will be opening soon so stay tuned!

Sunday, October 20th
9am – 4pm

TNW Members & Students | $55/day, $100 for Both Days
