 Write to Publish Conference at Wheaton College- for Christian Writers- (beginners to advancedl) on June 3rd-6th at Wheaton College, Wheaton IL, near Chicago. ( not sponsored by Wheaton College)- but the conference is held in the Billy Graham Center at the College -it is not run by the college but is a wonderful conference. Here is some info on the conference from the website- www.writetopublish.com     For more details on  fees, morning ongoing workshops, afternoon seminars, appointments with editors, free manuscript evaluation for attending the full conference, housing, and more go to the website. You can attend 1 day or more. ( April deadline for confence discount )

If you want to make a difference in the world and build God’s Kingdom, don’t let the economic climate deter you from God’s call to write. In addition to introducing people to the Lord and discipling them as believers through your words, writing is one way to supplement your income. Every year conferees report back that they made far more money from sales, assignments, and leads they gained at the Write-to-Publish Conference than what they paid for attending.

Whether you’re thinking about writing, longing to be published, looking for new markets and new ways to market your message, seeking to move from a part-time writer to a full-time writing career, or looking for a writing retreat with editor contacts, this conference is for you.

For almost 40 years, Write-to-Publish has been training writers and connecting them with editors who want to publish their work. Editors from Christian publishing houses will tell what they’re looking for and meet with you one-on-one to discuss your ideas and manuscripts. Well-published freelance writers and editors will teach you how to write a variety of publishable manuscripts, improve your writing skills, find appropriate markets for your ideas, and deal with the spiritual and business sides of writing. Plus you can get feedback on your manuscripts.

Join us June 3-6 for instruction, encouragement, networking, and fellowship with other writers and editors. You’ll discover why thousands of writers have made Write-to-Publish their conference of choice.

If you register, mention that Jody Moreen, conference alumni referred you to the conference. Thanks!
