I recently taught an Elders Quorum lesson based on President Nelson’s April 2019 General Conference Priesthood Session talk entitled “We Can Do Better and Be Better.” President Nelson remarked that “when Jesus asks you and me to ‘repent,’ He is inviting us to change our mind, our knowledge, our spirit - even the way we breath. He is asking us to change the way we love, think, serve, spend our time, treat our [spouses], teach our children, and even care for our bodies.”
Dreaming of writing a book, but no idea where to start? American Night Writers Association (ANWA) is a writer’s organization for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, both male and female, adult and youth.
ANWA is a non-profit professional organization for writers and aspiring writers. Monthly meetings occur throughout the United States. Some chapters meet in person, but writers may also attend monthly online meetings. Meetings consist of a writing thought and a short lesson on writing skills, followed by a critique session which allows participants to receive feedback on their work.
ANWA writers range from newbies to advanced, published and unpublished.
ANWA offers exceptional opportunities through yearly workshops, retreats and a top-notch annual conference.
This year’s American Night Writers Association Writers Conference will take place on September 12-14, 2019, at the Gilbert DoubleTree Event Center. It consists of two-and-a-half days of classes, plus hands-on, genre-specific feedback groups and mentor time. Opportunities to pitch books to agents from New York, California and Utah are available. The keynote speaker is Mary Weber, bestselling author of the Storm Siren trilogy, The Evaporation of Sofi Snow series, and To Best the Boys. The emcee is Adam Berg, a writer, actor and comedian from Studio C.
ANWA has been inspiring and teaching writers for more than thirty years.
