In the early nineteenth century the Rendezvous was the event of the year on the western frontier. Mountain men and Native Americans trapping along the streams and valleys of the Rocky Mountains gathered annually to sell their furs, trade for supplies, and tell stories. In that tradition, we welcome you to our annual gathering of writers and readers…
The second annual Idaho Rendezvous (2013) was a rousing success. The 2014 Rendezvous and Rendezvous contest will be another big one, with GREAT prizes. Early registration for the 2014 Rendezvous will begin at the end of December 2013. Click here to register.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 4th annual Idaho Writers & Readers Rendezvous with great anticipation! A stellar lineup of talent will be on hand to inspire and motivate you in virtually every facet of the writing craft. Pulitzer Prize winner Ron Powers, 2012 Whiting Award winner Daniel Orozco, and NY Times and USA Today Bestseller Ciji Ware headline a cadre of authors, screenwriters, agents and editors show will showcase their expertise and experience in classroom settings and one-on-one opportunities. We encourage you to stop read their books and check out their websites and blogs before attending the Rendezvous. It will make your interactions with them that much more meaningful and productive. A visit to our official bookseller, Rediscovered Books, in downtown Boise is a good first step.
You also have a shot at cash prizes in our writing contests, 1 on 1 pitches and manuscript evaluations, even the opportunity to lunch with a presenter of your choice. We also love showing off beautiful downtown Boise and the First Thursday and Saturday Market activities going on right outside the doors of the Boise Centre. We sincerely hope you’ll join us for what promises to be the biggest and best Rendezvous yet!
