He has written a variety of young adult novels in the horror and science fiction genres, including books like the Partials series, where a war and a baby-killing virus have devastated the population, and the Mirador novels about a teen cyber hacker in a futuristic Los Angeles.

The conference will be held at the Hopebox Theatre in Kaysville, Utah, located at 1700 Frontage Road.

The Wasatch Writers Fellowship was started in 2015 as a Meetup.com writing group and has grown to include over 500 members, over 40 of which are regulars at the meetups. “I started the group to find other writers who could give me, and each other, encouragement and support in working on our projects,” said Anderson. “Our overall goal is to help writers to improve their craft, finish projects and ultimately get published.”

More information can be found on the group’s website, and on social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Meetup.
