Last year, I did my big conference rounds and attended every single writers’ conference I could possibly attend. I drove thousands of miles, flew across the country a few times, and logged 30 trips when I sat down and prepared my taxes. THIRTY.
One that stood out to me was the Kentucky Christian Writers’ Conference. It was so well put together and the people were just amazing. As a Kentucky Christian writer, it was wonderful to find a place to connect with so many other writers who share my belief. I filled out the information card at the end of the conference and expressed an interest in being a part of the conference.
A few months later, I was invited to be part of the planning committee! I’ve spent several Saturdays this year meeting with this amazing group of people planning this year’s conference. This past weekend, I joined about 60 other Christian writers and just had an AMAZING conference. Jesse Florea from Focus on the Family was the keynote and delivered several inspiring speeches. I taught two classes (one twice) – Seven Steps to Successful Self Publishing and Writing Fiction with a Realistic Christian Worldview. My classes went well, the feedback was super, Gregg met with several authors for Olivia Kimbrell Press, and we networked and visited and prayed with writers from all over the place.
I am so blessed to be part of the planning of this conference. Look forward to hearing more and more about it as next June approaches and the conference gears up again!
