Christian Writers' Conference in Southern California

Christian Writers' Conference in Southern California

By SOP newswire

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.

See you there!
