Keep an eye on this page to see where JoEllen and the girls from the Idaho Creative Authors Network will be holding events this year.

2019 is off to a great start as the ICAN team just finished their Write On Writers' Retreat in Boise, Idaho! It was a great day to encourage new and seasoned authors and set some personal writing goals for the year.  

Keep up to date on our events by following us on facebook.


We will not be able to do our fall writing conference this year, but that is not going to stop us from having a writing contest!  Sign up today and follow the guidelines for the contest by going to . We will not be having separate categories this year. Instead, we will be having everyone write about the topic of Harvest Time. You can go in any direction that you want with your writing as long as the words "Harvest Time" are used in the title or the text of the entry. There will be prizes for first, second, and third place winners. Everyone will receive comments from the judges. This is a great opportunity to get feedback on your writing! The deadline is November 1st. 


Meet the newest members of the ICAN team, Carol Kjar (top left) and Carol Peterson (right), and Mary Vine (bottom left). Make sure to introduce yourselves to them at the upcoming events. They are eager to help you on your writing journey!
