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!
