Apart from the workshops and the general sessions, there are many other ways that our conference can help to advance your writing career:
Our instructors will be available for private 15-minute consultations, on request. They might be ableto critique your writing, or offer general advice about the publishing business. Just be sure to signup for an appointment when you arrive.
Logos Bible Software
For anyone who writes for the nonfiction market, you probably spend a great deal of time in research. Logos Bible Software will save you time, because it cross-references Bible passages with a vast library of books on history, theology, and Bible study. A Logos representative will be on hand to demonstrate their products and answer all of your questions.
After the four workshop sessions have ended, there's a good chance that you will still have many unanswered questions. So at the end of the evening on Saturday, you will have the perfect opportunity to get them out of your system: We will present a Q & A session with all of our faculty, where you can ask them anything. If they don't know the answer, it probably doesn't exist!
By the time that you leave our conference, we hope you’ll be inspired to tackle your writing projects as never before. You might want to start that rewrite, call that editor, or join a writers’ group. But perhaps you'll need some additional help to get there. So why wait?
By special arrangement with a local retailer, will have a book table stocked with books about publishing, writing, grammar -- anything else that might be beneficial to a writer who needs help to polish and market that manuscript.
In addition, our panelists will offer their books for sale. We don't pay them much, so please support them all you can.
