2021 PPW Virtual Conference
April 23 – 25, 2021


After a tumultuous 2020, one that stilted creativity and silenced muses, many of us need a fresh start and renewed confidence in our gift to tell our stories. So in 2021, we at Pikes Peak Writers want you to Bet on Yourself, it’s a sure-fire win!

Writers of all ages, experiences, genres, and success have moments of self-doubt. 

“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt” —Sylvia Plath

“I have written 11 books but each time I think ‘Uh-oh, they’re going to find out now. I’ve run a game on everybody, and they’re going to find me out.’” —Maya Angelou

“I am not a writer. I’ve been fooling myself and other people.” —John Steinbeck

“I don’t know whether every author feels it, but I think quite a lot do — that I am pretending to be something I am not, because, even nowadays, I do not quite feel as though I am an author.” — Agatha Christie
