About oremwrites

Each year Orem Public Library organizes a month-long community writing event called Orem Writes.

We are setting up a series of panels and workshops on a variety of different genres and styles including poetry, nonfiction, fiction, young adult, picture books, graphic novels, blogging, and publishing featuring some of Utah's finest writers, poets, illustrators and bloggers.
