An Invitation for Writers & Pastors—Carolina Christian Writers Conference

by Linda Gilden @LindaGilden

As we start a new year, I hope you have taken time to set some goals for your writing and figure out what you’d like to accomplish in 2023. When we assess our writing goals, we need to take a look at markets, article and book deadlines, and creative ways to sell books. 

But don’t forget education. Writers need to continue to grow and learn more of the craft of writing. One of the best ways to do that is by attending conferences. In 2023 there are many great choices—Asheville Christian Writers Conference, Florida Christian Writers Conference, Carolina Christian Writers Conference, Write 2 Ignite, Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, and many, many more.

If you are serious about your writing (or thinking about getting serious) I would like to personally invite you to be part of the Carolina Christian Writers Conference. This conference takes place at the Hangar, First Baptist Church, Spartanburg, SC, March 10-11 and this year the faculty and staff are the best yet. (I know I say that every year but I really mean it!)

Courtney Johnson Rhodes and Dana Russell will be leading our worship will be leading our worship. They were with us last year and blessed us as we worshipped together.

If you have ever wanted to write fiction, now is the time to learn from the masters – Eva Marie Everson, Aaron Zook, Edie Melson, Cindy Sproles, Larry Leech, and Ginger will be there to share their expertise in that and other areas.

Karen Porter will lead an early bird class Friday morning. “The Anatomy of a Book.” This is an optional class (there is a small additional charge) but gives you two and a half hours of intense training as you prepare your book for submission to a publisher. This is an invaluable time and will take you quickly to the next step in your novel writing. Don’t miss it!

Other faculty members include Eva Marie Everson, Tammy Karasek, Edna Ellison, Jimmie Davis, Candy Arrington, Lori Hatcher, Terri Kelly, Patricia Durgin, Vincent Davis, Debbie Presnell, Katy Kauffman, Linda Goldfarb, Vincent Davis, Melissa Henderson, Les Stobbe. All bring different areas of expertise to the table such as marketing, nonfiction books, Children’s books, and articles, and much more are anxious to meet with you and help you along with your writing.

Many publishers will be represented. All are eager to consider your work for their publications or give you direction as to where might be a suitable, prospective market. Meetings with the professionals are included in your tuition as is Saturday lunch. Lots of opportunities will be present for spending time with the faculty. Manuscript critiques and scholarships are also available. Details are on the Carolina Christian Writers Conference website.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the best and take your writing to the next level. Perhaps your goal for 2023 is to write a book. Come let the professionals at the Carolina Christian Writers Conference help you progress to the next level. There is room for you and a friend. Register for the Carolina Christian Writers Conference today!
