Meet the Authors of Tooele County

Tooele is full of talent. 

In the five years I've been involved in the writing community, I've seen so much talent in our little area. We've got a handful of authors who are published.  Both traditionally, as well as independently. One thing that impresses me about authors, is how friendly they are, and how genuinely interested they are in seeing each other succeed. 

Though I've been involved mostly in writing genre fiction in the Young Adult and Middle Grade fantasy categories, I know we have lots of people interested in Non Fiction, Poetry, Short stories, and many others. 

We want to expand our group and welcome anyone with an interest in writing to check us out. We are a Chapter of the League of Utah Writers, and being a due paying member offers lots of benefits. However, we welcome anyone to our meetings.  If you're interested in becoming a member of the League, check out this link.

We typically meet the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:30 to 8:00 at the Tooele City Library. 

We have a mailing list for information about the chapter and events happening.

We have a Facebook page where we share writing tips and get help and feedback on a variety of topics. 

In the comments you'll see information from a variety of authors connected to our group.  Please feel free to contact me at if you have any questions or are interested in joining.
