Dear Writing Friends,
We are sad to announce that we have decided to cancel the 2020 All-Iowa Writers’ Conference, which was slated for Sept. 19.
This conference was created in 2010 to help writers improve their craft and to network with each other. We believe strongly in the conference and the good that has come from it during the past 10 years. We are disappointed to have to make this decision.
COVID-19 has cast much uncertainty and craziness in our world. When hosting an event of this nature, we have to be aware of the safety of our attendees, presenters and family present. We feel this is the best move at this time.
On a positive note, we do plan to have our writing contest this year with prizes. Look back soon for more details on how to enter. And watch here for the announcement for our first presenter for 2021, which will be released soon.
We hope to see you in 2021!
J.O. and Debbie Parker
