LITTLE ROCK — The Outdoor Writers Association of America will kick off its 92nd annual conference in Little Rock by offering a free, half-day workshop titled “Becoming an Outdoors Communicator,” from 2-5 p.m., Friday, June 21, at the Robinson Center/DoubleTree by Hilton.

The workshop is the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in pursuing a career in outdoor communication – whether through writing, photography, radio or media relations – to learn about the field, how to break in and how to be successful. Hear established professionals share industry tips and tricks. No matter your area of interest, you won’t want to miss this workshop which showcases the variety of opportunities outdoor communications offers. 

Anyone is welcome; whether you’ve already published a book or are still hovering over the keyboard or GoPro “thinking about it.” We all started with just an interest and desire. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers. 

Free registration is available at

Workshop participants are also welcome to attend OWAA’s three-day conference as a guest. After signing up for this free event, learn more about the entire conference at or call OWAA headquarters at 406-728-7434.
