Letter from the PPW Executive Director

My Fellow Writers:

That feeling is in the air.  You know the one, right?  The one that tells us that the Pikes Peak Writers Conference(PPWC) is getting closer.  My favorite weekend of the year. 

As a writer, for over a decade I have anticipated the PPWC.  Not only because of the world-class agents, editors, and best-selling authors we bring in, but for the workshops and fellow writers that fill my writing well.  There is always something to learn as a writer no matter what point of the journey you are on...novice or multi-contracted author.  The energy that fills the halls and classrooms at the conference cannot be described.  It simply has to be experienced to be understood.

Now, some may say I'm biased.  And they are right.  But I'm biased because I've attended many different conferences and still find myself filled with the most anticipation for PPWC. 

If you've been to the conference before, come back. We've missed you. If you've never attended a PPWC, make this the year you find out what agents, editors, and authors mean when they say that this conference is the friendliest, best organized, and most educational.

This year marks our 20th conference event and we are pulling out all stops to top our best.  Visit our web site,, to read about who will be there.  See the fabulous events we have planned.  Read about the top-notch workshops available to attendees.  Don't forget to take a look at our additional Thursday programming that you can add to the weekend.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.  I'm always happy to help.

Hope to see you in April.

Jodi Anderson
Pikes Peak Writers Executive Director
