Have you ever attended a writers conference sponsored by American Christian Writers? You should consider it. I have attended a couple of them and found practical help and inspiration. Reg Forder, Director of American Christian Writers, hosts the conferences held around the country. And his wife Eleonore is at his side helping make it the best conference possible. I found them to be most gracious people. And plan a book budget! The selection of books for writers is tremendous!
I just received a flyer about their special one-day seminar in Memphis scheduled for Saturday, March 10, 2012. Who is the conference for? Let me quote from their flyer:
“THE UNPUBLISHED PERSON. This day will provide all the information you need to decide if you should pursue the writing profession, as well as how to get started.
“THE PUBLISHED PERSON. This day will give you a review of the basics and provide important current trend and marketing information.”
For more information about American Christian Writers, visit their website. The conference page offers their schedule for conferences around the country through 2012 and 2013. Notice that they even schedule an annual cruise! Their email address is ACWriters@aol.com.
