Life, The Universe, and Everything is a writing conference held every February in Provo. This year they’re doing an online thing because they’re not allowed to meet in person.
Normally LTUE is about the single best event that an aspiring writer can go to that doesn’t cost a bunch of money (it’s super cheap). It’s one of the big reasons Utah has such a disproportionate number of authors. If you are starting out as a writer or looking to hone your craft, you should check it out.
