A Chapter of the League of Utah Writers

Brought together by a band of merry people looking to expand their writing skills, hoist each other up in fellowship, and sail ideas of creativity between one another:
the Salty Scribblers were born.
A small writing chapter associated with the League of Utah Writers, we aim to work through tides of each writers journey. From beginner to advanced, fictional to academic, we welcome those that want a place to plant their flag and write alongside us.

Stefania Restivo


A writer, a creative, and a lover of all things artistic. Stefania Restivo has spent a lifetime creating worlds and writing scripts for her imaginary friends.On top of her love for the written word, Stefania spends her time indulging in her vices known as video and tabletop games with her partners in crime at the Salty Scribblers.Through the years Stefania has come to utilize her experiences both online and off to become involved in the vast writing community that thrives in her local state of Utah and in the virtual atmosphere she is at home with.

Sara Weikel


Sara is a sci fi/fastasy writer, poet, and sometime journalist, and has been involved with the Leauge of Utah Writers since 2018.Three phrases that accurately describe her are: "chaotic thinker," "aspiring green thumb," and "too many dice." She lives in the Salt Lake area with two cats and a gamer.

Though relatively new to Utah and the localized writing scene, Kade Conner has been a co-writer and creative accomplice to Stefania Restivo for a number of years.Pursuing a deeper understanding of the elements and methods of writing Kade has looked to become a more well-rounded writer and creator, leading him to join the League of Utah Writers.

Jeff Stratford


A writer for most of my life, I love to tell stores.In my resume of writing credentials, I have done some ghostwriting for a local newspaper as well as several unpublished manuscripts featuring different media from comic books to screenplays and novels. Most recently, I have been writing the voice lines and narrative beats for video games.I was born in Salt Lake City and have lived there most of my life. I spent two years serving an LDS mission in Taiwan, where I learned to speak Chinese and was able to appreciate the unique and interesting culture. Returning home, I spent the majority of my time learning how to write and developing that skill to be able to tell stories, be they in a physical book or on the screen of a game.
