I’ve always had the worst time filling the state of Wyoming—here’s a call out to all you Wyoming writers—if you’d like the spot for 2016, contact me. It’s still open. In any case, not filling a spot gives me the opportunity to find and promote writing groups and this post does that. In my search, I found this organization so check it out. Use the link to their website for the most current information.
Wyoming Writers, Inc. (WW, Inc.) began in 1974 following a writing workshop, as a way to continue the conversation and create a community for writers in our wide-open, sparsely populated state. An annual conference quickly became a cornerstone of the group, a foundation from which isolated writers could build relationships to further their writing endeavors.
2016 Conference Set for Riverton From June 3-5. Our 42nd Annual Conference will be held in Riverton June 3, 4, 5, 2016.
Ready Your Pens for Upcoming 2016 Writing Contest-Open to all writers at any level.
Deep dark secrets, labyrinths of the psyche, beauty in ashes, wisdom born from green growth, tenderness formed from thorns, passion in crisis. Words, form, and the need to create. Life at play in the frame of a page.
You still have a few months to play with images, tales and words, but Wyoming Writers, Inc. encourages you to plan to submit your haiku, true fiction, villanelle, screen play, or real life tales to the 2016 writing contest. WW, Inc. will soon solicit your work for the 2016 writing contest in the five categories: Adult fiction (including short stories, excerpts from longer works and screen plays), Fiction for Children and Young Adult, Nonfiction, Free Verse Poetry and Traditional Poetry. The deadline for submission will be March 15, 2016.
We invite you to join our conversation.

And some info on Riverton, Wyoming http://www.rivertonchamber.org It looks like a beautiful area of the country-check it out.
Riverton sits at the convergence of the Big Wind and Little Wind Rivers which has been a meeting place and crossroads since pre-historic times. Chief Washakie, Jim Bridger and Sacajawea are only a few of the legends that walked this land. As well as being the site of the 1838 mountain man rendezvous making Riverton truly a place to gather.
