Event Details

The 2019 annual conference of the Utah Council of Teachers of English will feature an exciting keynote speaker and inspiring teacher-led breakout sessions. Our keynote speaker this year is Penny Kittle. Our teacher-led breakout sessions will cover topics ranging from common core implementation to best writing practices to incorporating digital literacies into the classroom. Join us for what promises to be an energizing and inspiring day of profesional development!

For up-to-the-minute information about the conference, keynotes, breakouts, and author appearances, please check our home page.



How much does the conference cost?
Registration is $75.00 for an individual. There are discounts offered for full-time students, breakout session presenters, and groups (see our 6-for-5 promtion, described below).

What do I get for my money?
A full day of amazing professional development, including fantastic keynote and breakout sessions. You'll also receive a light breakfast, lunch, and a full year of membership in UCTE, including a copy of this year's Utah English Journal full of great teaching ideas and book reviews.

How do I register for the conference?
By using this page right here! Select the appropriate option and quantity from the list above, then you'll be taken to a new page where you will enter your contact information and make payment for the conference.

Which forms of payment do you accept?
We accept any major credit or debit card. We process payments using PayPal since that's the easiest (and cheapest) for our organization, but you do not need to have a PayPal account to complete payment. Once you've selected the registration option above and filled out your contact information, you'll be redirected to the PayPal site to complete your registration. To pay with district or school check, on the order screen where you purchase tickets, click the "Show other payment options" link beneath the green "Order Now" button and you'll see a button for offline payments. You can bring your check on the day of the conference or contact the chair for mailing instructions. If you need an invoice for a district purchase order, you can email the conference chair.

How do I get to the conference?
There is plenty of parking at this venue, but Jordan Commons is very close to public transit. The Sandy Expo Trax Station is within walking distance (one block) of the conference venue, and UTA has a bus line with a stop at 9400S and State Street, on the same block as the conference center.

How do I take advantage of the 6-for-5 promotion?
Full-time teachers only are eligible for this promotion, and you don't have to all be at the same school or even in the same district. Please gather all the contact information for each of the six teachers wanting to register before completing the process here. If your district or school is paying for the fees for your group, you can select the option to pay offline and bring a district or school check with you to the conference. Note that when you select the group option discount from the list above, you will select a quantity of 6 (the only option available, since you're purchasing six tickets to the conference).

Can I update my registration information?
You can edit any registration information by returning to this site and editing the registration you've made. Or, you may contact our conference chair at and we'll take care of you!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, but please have the email copy of your receipt accessible (i.e., on a mobile device) in case there are questions or problems with your registration.

Hey, I've got a great idea for a breakout session. How do I get my name on the program?
We'd love to have you share a breakout session at our conference. Proposals for breakout sessions are accepted until September 30. Use this form to submit your proposal.

What is your refund policy?
Up until one week before the conference begins, refunds will be issued in the payment form used to originally pay the registration fee and will be for the cost of registration minus a processing fee ($10) for each individual. Within a week of the conference date and up to the day before the conference begins, we will refund 50% of the ticket price. No refunds will be processed on the day of the conference. To request a refund, please contact the conference chair at

I just found out I can't make it to the conference, but another teacher in my school or district would like to come in my place. Is that possible?
Yes! Just email and provide your name and school as well as the information for the teacher who will be taking your place. We'll adjust the registration information.

Do you need any help for the conference? I'd love to help out!
Yes! As a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, we rely on teachers across the state to contribute their time and energy to UCTE. We could use help before the conference in planning and organizing the event and can also use lots of help on the day of the conference. If you'd like to volunteer, please contact the conference chair.
