FaithWriters Conference Registration Now Open!

In August, 2007, the very first FaithWriters conference was held in Livonia, Michigan, where the FaithWriters home office is located. Fabulous doesn't even come close to describing that conference, from keynote speaker, Sally Stuart, to excellent teaching by our own Deb Porter, David Ian, and Cori Smelker. And don't even get me started on what it was like to finally meet other FaithWriters members face-to-face. It was like one, big, two-day family reunion. Those of us who attended have been counting the days until the next conference.

Well, I am thrilled to announce that the time has finally come! Registration is now open for the 2009 FaithWriters conference! The theme this year will focus on "Nurturing the Whole Writer" and featured speakers include inspirational romance author, Linore Rose Burkard, and FaithWriters own Deb Porter, Corinne Smelker, David Ian, and Jan Ackerson.

Great news! When I'm teaching at conferences, I always bring my Faithwriter Anthologies and encourage everyone to sign up and start challenging themselves with the weekly writing prompts. Keep up the wonderful work.
