Welcome to the

May 11-14, 2016 conference
from CCWC’s Director, 

Marlene Bagnull, Litt.D.


The May 11-14, 2016, CCWC, my 20th year directing, will again feature a faculty of over 50 authors, editors, and agents; early bird workshops on Wednesday; 8 continuing sessions; and 42 workshops or 3 hands-on clinics! In addition, those who attend the entire conference are eligible for 4 one-on-one 15-minute appointments with the faculty of their choice with a bonus FIFTH appointment for the first 75 registrants.

But CCWC is about so much more than numbers and opportunities to strengthen your writing and marketing skills, to get valuable feedback on your work, to pitch to editors and agents, and to form deep friendships with others who share your passion for words and for the Lord.

CCWC is about connecting with Him and learning to wait on Him for the answers He will give us. If you long for your words to make a difference in the lives of your readers, if your heart's desire is to be encouraged and equipped to write about a God who is real, who is reachable, and who changes lives, you need to come to this year’s CCWC and trust Him to make it possible!

As I consider the crises facing our nation and world, I cannot think of a more important assignment than to "write His answer." I'm praying you will accept His assignment and make plans now to join us on the mountain at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park for our May 11-14, 2016, conference.
