ACFW Conference 2009

Pictured here with good friends, Beth & Lisa

This past week, I attended the American Christian Fiction Writer's Conference in Denver, CO. Nearly 540 writers, agents, and editors gathered for four days of workshops, meetings, fellowship and worship. It was great to see old friends and make new ones. Some of the highlights included attending the Donald Maass early bird workshop; spending time with good friends, Beth Goddard, Lisa Harris, Kim Sawyer, and Rhonda Gibson; bidding on Camy Tang's blue prayer shawl (which I didn't win--though I did try); visiting with my agent Rachelle Gardner and editor, Sue Brower; hearing Debbie Macomber's keynote speeches; and worshipping with so many like-minded writers. Such blessings--all of them. Here are a few pictures from the weekend.
