The Storymakers Indie Author Hub (SMIAH) Writers Conference is a writing event co-sponsored by both the Storymakers Author Guild and Indie Author Hub Guild. This conference has an annual tradition of inspiring authors from across the country and around the world, giving them the tools they need to let their words light a fire of inspiration throughout their work and our minds.

The 2022 conference will continue to bring a unique spin to the traditional writers conference, offering both in-person and virtual attendance options. With a distinctly Indie flavor and all the traditional building blocks, this is the conference you need to step out of the ruts and see your writing and career clearly.

Words have power to light a fire in our minds and in our lives and the SMIAH Writers Conference can help you set the spark! Whether you're an author seeking a traditional path, a self-published author, a hybrid author, a professional author, or an author just beginning the journey, you can light the spark of your career here, at the SMIAH Writers Conference.
