Saving the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference

by Edie Melson @EdieMelson

The Christian publishing industry received sad news several weeks ago—The Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference was closing. For those of us who've been part of the industry for years, this was the granddaddy of all events. And it's been on my bucket list for years. 

Then a possible reprieve—Steve Laube announced his attempt to keep this wonderful event alive through a Kickstarter campaign. I pray he's successful. 

All the details are here, on his post, Help Save the 2021 Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. My first thought was that 2021 would be my year and I'd find a way to attend. Then I saw the cost and realized that wasn't something I could manage. 

BUT, every little bit helps, and I'm definitely donating to help keep this conference running! 

Here's another post with Everything You Need to Know About the 2021 Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. I hope you'll join me as we all band together to keep our industry events strong!



  1. I've never been to the Mt. Hermon conference either, but I believe the BRMCWC is as great as any out there. You and DiAnn have taken a wonderful foundation and built on it like none others. You've managed to bring classes together for all levels of writers.

    1. Ane, thank you! I just know the industry is stronger if we keep our conferences alive :)

  2. My husband and I have attended the Mt Hermon Writers Conference twice. Both experiences were wonderful, unlike any other conferences we've attended. We're donating to the cause in hopes it will continue!

  3. The Mt Hermon Writers Conference was a mountain top experience. It was a fire hose of information, fellowship and encouragement. May the glory of God continue to be a light in the dark for all writers, speakers, and servants in Christian communication. Uplifting blessings fellow writers, Carolyn Knefely. Write on!
