The SMIAH Writers conference is a great conference sponsored by both the Storymakers Authors Guild and Indie Author Hub Guild. This conference is on it's ninth year of inspiring authors from across the country and giving them the tools they need to take their writing to the next level!

While adjusting to a changing world 2020 will be a smaller event packed with information and learning. Brought to you by the amazing authors of our SMIAH family. We want you to be a part of that.


In the year 2021 we'll continue to bring a unique spin to the traditional writers conference. 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.

Whatever you're seeing in your future the SMIAH Writers Conference can help you see it clearly! Whether you're an author seeking a traditional path, a hybrid author, a professional author, an author just beginning the journey, or a self-published author, you can find your vision here.
