Ozarks writing conference, considered too racy, finds new home

POINT LOOKOUT, Mo. – A writing conference that was kicked off the College of the Ozarks campus for sessions that were considered too racy has found a new home.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that a spokeswoman said the College of the Ozarks decided not to host the Ozarks Writer’s League because some of the topics of discussions were not consistent with the school’s Christian values.

Ozarks Writers League board member Jeanie Horn said that the group had been looking for a new host for their conference, but were disappointed with the way their relationship with the school ended. The College of the Ozarks had hosted the league since the mid-1980s.

The Ozarks Writers League will hold their conference at the Ozarks Technical Community College.
