Christian Writers' Conference in Southern California
We are pleased to announce that the third annual Antelope Valley Christian Writers' Conference has been scheduled for May 2-3, 2008.
Never heard of the Antelope Valley? It's a semi-rural desert community in the High Desert of Southern California, near Los Angeles.
Whether you're an absolute beginner -- a seasoned professional -- or somewhere in-between, this may be for you. If you enjoy writing, and you'd like to learn how the publishing business works, you are welcome to attend. We have assembled a distinguished faculty of experienced writers and editors, each of whom has a ministry dedicated to helping other writers to succeed.
Here, you will have the opportunity to interact with professional writers and editors, and attend workshops in a wide array of creative categories. You'll meet fellow writers who share your calling - your zeal - and perhaps your frustrations as well. You can trade ideas, share experiences, and support one another in prayer.
In the general session, and in the workshops, we will discuss:
How can you improve your writing skills?
How should a Christian approach his writing?
What's keeping you from getting published?
What do editors and publishers look for, when evaluating a manuscript?
You can learn how to hone your craft and achieve your goals through excellent instruction and one-on-one mentoring. Together, we can help you take your writing to the next level, the best it can be.
In addition to our workshops, you can take advantage of:
Group discounts for churches and schools;
A writing contest with cash prizes;
Free critiques from our faculty;
Books from Barnes & Noble;
Free wireless Internet; and Complimentary refreshments and a continental breakfast.
Have we piqued your interest?
We will meet in the facilities of The Antelope Valley Church, a non-denominational congregation on the Westside of the city of Lancaster. Several budget- priced hotels are in the local area for your convenience.
