Called to Write Conference 2011

For any writers out there, I wanted to let you know about an upcoming conference sponsored by my local Christian Writers Fellowship:

Called to Write Conference
April 1-2, 2011
Lamplighter Inn
4020 Parkview Drive, Pittsburg, KS

Guest Speakers:

Terry W. Burns is an agent with Hartline Literary and a writer with over 40 books in print, including ten novels. Beyond the Smoke won the Will Rogers Medallion in 2009. A member of the Association of Author's Representatives, he is consistently one of the top five agents placing debut authors on Publisher's Marketplace. He is always looking for a good book, well written in a unique voice, aimed at a promising market.

Jeanette Gardner Littleton has written more than 5000 pieces--from curriculum for church nurseries to articles for all kinds of Christian publications. She has been an editor for 30 years for eight different publications, including Moody magazine. Now freelance, she continues magazine editing and has edited and produced book projects for five major publishers. Teaching writers and editors is a special pleasure.

Other speakers: Trieste Van Wyngarden, Sally Jadlow, and Deborah Vogts.

This two-day event sponsors great workshops; a writing contest for nonfiction, fiction, devotionals, and poetry; paid critiques; and read-around groups where attendees read their work for general comments. A book table is also available where attendees can purchase writing how-to books as well as speaker and CWF member books.
