Write Here in Ephraim 2016!

With Snow College Continuing Education as a partner, the 6th Annual "Write Here in Ephraim" conference had much cooler signage! (When doing it on my own,  I hand lettered poster paper.)
I ALSO LOVE THE LOGO, designed by my son, Professor Andrew Bahlmann.
My friend, Justin Osmond, gave an amazingly humorous and inspirational speech at our Saturday Meet and Greet. (Can you read my shirt? Are you going to do what it says? Yeah, look at the shirt, not my feet, which forgot to get into model's pose for this shot.)

 Prolific author Dean Hughes gave an inspiring speech in the middle of our workshops on Saturday, and he also gave everyone at the conference some of his books for free! 
(Woo Hoo! Everyone got a door prize!)
 Here I am with Cheree Alsop, who writes a book every 2 1/2 months!
 Christopher Loke came from Jolly Fish Press to inspire writers at the conference.
 Here is Spur (a highfalutin' Western author writing prize) winner Rod Miller
I wanted to get pictures with all the amazing authors who came and shared their professional information with up-and-coming writers, but I missed getting photos with them. So here's a shout-out and hugs to Tristi Pinkston, Rebecca Blevins, Karlene Browning, Jenni James, Steve Clark, C. David Belt, Kate Palmer, Loralee Evans, Kathryn and Douglas Jones, Rebecca Scott, Sabine Berlin, Heidi Brockbank, Meg Jensen, Ellen Walker, James Duckett, and Angie Lofthouse. Then the student helpers Lindsey and Sarah were so pleasant. (I better not have missed anyone! They are all so incredibly important to me, and I love and appreciate their talents and good hearts.) We got amazing feedback from our attendees, who loved the conference overall. The only complaints were not having classes repeated, and starting too early and running too late. (But how else could we fit so much goodness into a couple of days?)
Who do you love and appreciate?

One minute messed up my photo!  As I stopped my car at my yard gate on my way to work, I saw a jet trail criss crossing through the moon....
