What a blast we had last week at the Storytelling 101 Workshop! A BIG THANK YOU to Nancy Steedle and also to our keynote speaker, Tom Roberts! Both were informative and entertaining. We all learned some things we can use in our own writing and had a great time in the process.

A Little about the speakers:
South Dakota author, storyteller and performer, Tom Roberts, offers participants an interactive and amusing experience as they explore the art of Storytelling.
Through the use of games, exercises and demonstration, Roberts shares his unique insights by engaging workshop attendees in a fun and creative journey of bringing words to life.
With nearly 30 years of experience as an actor, writer and storyteller, Roberts has authored three Christmas books (‘Twas The Night Before Christ; Santa’s Prayer & The Little Lost Sock) and is launching a new one this fall. His life’s work and volunteerism was featured in the book, “Turning Dreams Into Success”.
Roberts has written and performed several theatrical one-man shows including Mark Twain, Will Rogers, Badger Clark, Theodore Roosevelt, Gutzon Borglum and Ernest Hemmingway. He has worked with tens of thousands of students of all ages throughout his career and continues to be a much requested speaker throughout the state.
Local author, Nancy Steedle lives in Sioux Falls and is member of the South Dakota Authors Association.
She has authored three novels: Layer of Lies and the first two books in the Donovan Burke series, Winter Kill and Grievous Offense. She is originally from Pittsburgh, PA and lived for a time in Des Moines, IA, which is the setting for much of her writing.

Welcome to the SDAA’s official website!
We serve authors across the state and we want to hear from you. We have LOTS of exciting things going on and we want to know if there is something YOU would like to see happen for authors in South Dakota.
We are in the process of obtaining our 501(c)(3) tax exempt status to become a public charity. Tax-deductible donations will allow us to offer more and better programs, events, and opportunities for authors in South Dakota.
The literary world is experiencing a lot of new things and we want South Dakota to have a large part in that. We are not a political organization or special interest group. We advocate for authors across the state and seek to promote and provide opportunities for authors and writing groups to grow and expand their horizons.
We offer special promotions and programs to encourage, support and promote authors and their groups and events. These include exciting writing events, special promotions, contests, grants, and many, many other things to assist and encourage South Dakota’s writers . . . to simply write! South Dakota Writers, our nation and our world needs to hear from you – and that is why we are here – to give you a voice and a platform from which to be heard.
We hope you will enjoy your membership in SDAA and look forward to serving you. If you have ideas about things you think would benefit South Dakota’s writers, please let us know and we will consider EVERY suggestion for development.

While the website is under construction you will undoubtedly see changes in layout and content. We ask for your patience during this process but we thought you might appreciate having access to it during the growth period, rather than waiting for the big “tah dah”. We hope we were right.
