The Greater Philly Writers Conference
Next month I will be teaching at The Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference, August 6-8, in Langhorne, PA. I've attended this conference many, many times as both a conferee and as faculty--leading a variety of workshops. This year I am conducting a fiction clinic for Not Yet Published Novelists or as I've been calling it NYPN Blues. It should be fun. I love to teach and talk about words and books and writing and I hope the 12 or so folks in my clinic will walk away feeling they've learned something valuable and lasting--something that will help them rise above the run of the mill slush that editors see every day. Other faculty include Shannon Marchese of Waterbrook, Sue Brower of Zondervan, Kathy Mackel, Jeff Gerke, Pam Halter, Susan May Warren and a whole lot of other talented and smart people. If you're already registered, then get ready for a great time. If you haven't registered I suggest you do so quickly. GPCWC is one of the best. Register here, Write His Answer.
If you aren't able to get into my clinic, I have time set aside to meet for appointments or track me down at a meal or around campus. I'm happy to chat.
If you are in my clinic, leave a comment and let me know what you're looking forward to most about the clinic and the conference in general. If you are not in my clinic, leave a comment with a question you might have wanted to ask about your WIP or writing novels and I'll do my best to answer.
Contest Flash: If you leave your comment in verse and I like it best, you will receive a free, signed copy of The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow. Have fun. See you there.
and just for fun. Who can decode this message? The first person to do it wins an Agnes.
