Summer Conference 2018: “Opening Doors”

Top editors, agents, and authors dedicated to help you reach your writing goals

“The summer conference was absolutely wonderful. I came away totally inspired. My coaching class helped me find my niche and vision for writing. I enjoyed the fellowship, prayer, and Christian atmosphere so much. I received great tips on my submitted manuscripts, and my mentor gave me great direction.” Conferee

Start planning now for this rich time of fellowship, learning, and worship—a time to study the craft, meet editors and agents, get feedback, receive next-step advice from mentors, and refresh your writing goals. Daily worship and devotions are a highlight of our conference as we seek to encourage writers in their faith and writing careers.

Other highlights include:

  • Morning coaching classes (three days) for advanced, intermediate, and beginning writers. Fiction, nonfiction, memoir, articles, writing for YA and middle grades
  • Afternoon workshops and “Nite Owls”
  • One-on-one appointments with editors and agents
  • Manuscript reviews by editors and agents
  • Mentoring appointments with professional authors
  • The annual Cascade Awards for published and not-yet-published writers.
