Crested Butte Writers Conference
June 5-8, 2014
The Crested Butte Writers Conference and the Sandy Writing Contest are unique and special events.
But in 2015 we're taking a break from the extensive planning and administering such a conference requires, to focus on our own writing.
Hope to see you in the future, and happy writing!
