The Authors of the Flathead is a very active writing group in the scenic Pacific Northwest. Each Fall, they sponsor one fo the most writer-friendly conferences around. This year, it will be October 1-2, 2011, on the Flathead Valley Community College campus, at the north edge of Kalispell, Montana. As always, it is limited to 100 participants, so don't come expecting the hordes you may have trampled under at other conferences.
Glacier International Airport is less than 10 miles away. In Kalispell, we do have fine restaurants and hotels, rental cars, paved roads, and cell phone coverage. No need to bring your six-shooter, since wolves and outlaws rarely cross the city limits.
Rather than me bragging on and on, follow this link and check out the fine speakers that have been assembled.http://www.authorsoftheflathead.org/conference.asp
