Thanks for the cordial invitation, Pikes Peak Writers Conference

One of my Cheyenne critique group colleagues, Liz Roadifer, received this e-letter from the Pikes Peak Writers organization. Liz has been involved with this group for awhile and says they put on a great conference each spring. I may attend in 2012 for the first time. Some fine writers on the PPWC presenters' list, including Champion Mojo Storyteller Joe R. Lansdale and Robert "Elvis Cole" Crais. 
The link below takes you to a user-friendly web site.

This is such a simple and appealing invitation. Maybe other regional writing groups could take a page from PPWC: 
Dear Elizabeth,

My fellow writers here in Cheyenne have been urging me to do so for years. At long last, I may just do that.
