Desert Nights, Rising Stars

Desert Nights Rising Stars publishing conference Arizona State University CLMP Members


The Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference creates a unique and intimate creative writing experience where writers of all backgrounds, genres, and skill levels gather together and connect through the celebration and study of literary craft, culture, and community. 

CLMP has become a sponsor of Desert Nights, Rising Stars, an incredible opportunity for our member publishers. The exhibitor book fair will be promoted extensively to the general public as an opportunity to participate and engage with the literary community outside of the conference. Besides the conference’s 300+ guests, this fair takes place during ASU’s Open Door, on Saturday, February 23, which draws over 32,000 guests to campus.

We’ve negotiated a discounted rate for the conference’s exhibitor fair for CLMP members. The cost is $200 (versus $350). Interested members can register here.
