    The Board of Directors and staff of the Kanab Writers Conference is imminently concerned for the health, safety, and wellbeing of our KWC family. To that end, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the conference until 2021. The new dates for the Kanab Writers Conference will be November 4-6, 2021. Please be patient with us as we update the information on our website to reflect this change. The vast majority of our conference offerings, including keynotes, seminars, etc. will all remain the same. The early bird discount will be available until December 31, at which point regular conference pricing will resume. You can register at any time until the conference next year. For questions, please reach out on our social media channels, or through email at email at kanabwritersconference@gmail.com.***Beginning with school visits by J. Scott Savage, the 2020 Kanab Writers Conference kicks off on Thursday, November 12th.
