AML Writers' Conference in November

The first annual Association for Mormon Letters writers' conference, themed "Finding a Voice," will be held 13 November 1999 from 9:00 to 5:00 in the Sorensen Student Center Ballroom at Utah Valley State College in Orem, Utah. Nationally published writers Louise Plummer and Carol Lynn Pearson will speak during two plenary sessions, and other sessions will feature various LDS authors and publishers, including Ann Edwards Cannon, Eugene England, Jerry Johnston, Lance Larsen, Cory Maxwell, Elbert Peck, Levi Peterson, Eric Samuelson, Tessa Santiago, Tim Slover, and Carol Lynch Williams.

Registration is $40.00 per person at the door, $35.00 if you preregister, or $25.00 for full-time students. If desired, lunch is an additional $7.00. You may preregister for the conference and luncheon by sending your check made payable to the AML to treasurer Henry Miles at 1925 Terrace Drive, Orem, UT 84097. He may be contacted at 801-226-5585 or

As a special feature of this conference, participants can opt to have 10 pages of their manuscripts read by a published author in their genre. This service costs $35 extra and is limited to the first 30 takers. Reserve a place by contacting Carol Clark Ottesen at 801-489-3624 or After she has confirmed your reservation, send the fees and manuscripts to her at 1850 South Main Street, Mapleton, UT 84664. (Note: An AML flyer sent out in early September erroneously advertised these readings as free for the first 30 conference registrants. This is incorrect. Critiques are by fee only. The AML apologizes for this error.)

For twenty years the Association for Mormon Letters has worked for the development of a literature by and about Mormons that is both authentic and of high literary standards. This conference is designed to further meet that goal by inviting serious writers and readers associated with the Latter-day Saint community to learn from one another and grow in their professional and personal pursuits. Your participation is important to us as we move toward broadening our base and including new members. We are eager to bring together some of the best minds and clearest voices for this event.
