White County Creative Writers’ first conference, held on the Saturday before Labor Day in 1996, was attended by approximately 40 writers. It was a simple format, including a sandwich buffet and a magician ( our own David Roper) for entertainment at lunch. Since that time, we have added contests, so now the full buffet luncheon serves as the venue for our awards ceremony, as well as super door prizes that are donated by members and local merchants.

The conference is now attended by 60-70 writers mainly from Arkansas and her surrounding states, but we have had attendees from Iowa, Washington State, and many others. Our contests are truly national, with entrants from Alaska to Florida, and points in between.
