Covid Policy
The Quills Conference is a hybrid event. For the safety of speakers and attendees, we highly recommend COVID vaccinations and antigen testing before attending. Masks are also strongly recommended. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, or you've been exposed to anyone with a respiratory illness, we ask that you attend virtually the day of the conference. (Subject to change based on current public health policies and infectious disease statistics). 

Notice of Filming and Photography

The League of Utah Writers will take photos of attendees throughout the Quills Conference. These photos are for League use only and may appear on the League website, newsletter, conference brochures, social media outlets, or other future League promotional material.

This also includes photos uploaded using the League conference app. By virtue of your in-person attendance, you agree to usage of your likeness in such media.
