J is for Jackson Hole, Wyoming: A Writer's Road Trip Series

     The Writer's Road Trip Series is brought to you by the Blogging from A-to-Z April Challenge. This month I'm blogging daily about ideal places for an afternoon, weekend or longer stay to focus on your writing. Need a retreat to finish that manuscript? Or maybe a virtual trip to inspire a scene? Take a minute, read, imagine. And thanks for stopping by!

   Along with the breath-taking scenery, Jackson Hole, Wyoming enjoys a pretty vibrant arts community, including its love of literature. If you're looking to combine your vacation with a writing-related destination, this town is a great option. For its 22nd year, the Jackson Hole Writer's Conference will host some big names during its weekend conference on June 26-28, 2014. One-on-one manuscript critiques, a pre-conference workshop, and separate tracks for fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and young adult are some of the highlights. The early bird registration fee of $365 ends May 12th. There's even a $175 fee for a young  writer if you have a budding novelist in the house. After the conference, don't miss out on visiting Grand Teton National Park. The wildlife and scenery are spectacular!

  2. Doesn't Harrison Ford live there? And awhile back, didn't he help rescue someone off a mountain while he was flying his helicopter? (I really hope I'm not making that up!) :)

    1. I don't think you're dreaming it. I vaguely remember that, too, though I can't recall anymore details than you did.

  3. My best friend of 40 years loves this place and has been trying to get me there for years.

    The way he describes it, it sounds like it is just south of heaven.
