Do the math! I know – like me numbers may not be your thing, but that’s over 100 hours you will be able to view for THREE MONTHS after the conference. Wow! That’s less than $2 an hour if you watch everything. Plus during the conference you’ll have opportunities to:
interact with other conferees in small group breakouts
learn more about the editorial needs and the genres our agents are interested in representing in addition to getting your questions answered during mealtimes
participate in a critique group Thursday and Friday afternoon or a Q&A with our authors
and meet with agents and editors in three or four appointments
Yes, it won’t be the same as being in person. Honestly, in some ways I believe it will be even better! Of course, I will miss the hugs and the mountains and the elk (and the moose I hoped to finally see this year), but the connection I will still feel with everyone – and especially with the Lord – will not be diminished by going virtual. I know the same will be true for you.
So take some time to check out this year’s faculty and program for what I know will be an amazing and life-changing 25th anniversary conference that will encourage and equip you to write about a God who is real, who is reachable, and who changes lives.

A word from Marlene
I’ve never forgotten my first writers’ conference. It was a huge sacrifice financially.
I was beyond nervous!
Even though I’d not forgotten the shorthand I learned in high school,
I couldn’t begin to write down everything
the editors said they were - and were not – wanting to see.
Trying to choose was even more stressful.
And then there was no guarantee
that those I chose would want to meet with me.

At the Colorado and Greater Philly Christian Writers Conference you get to choose who you want to meet.
There’s no last-minute deciding once you arrive or long lines. Instead, using the resources we provide online, you submit your appointment requests pre-conference. The earlier you register, the better opportunity you’ll have of getting your top choices.
Our extraordinary Appointments Coordinator, Barb Haley, will again create charts like the ones below. Please note these are from last year and are only the first page of each category.
Finally, because in today’s publishing world it takes more than great writing to get our work published and read, the charts also contain columns for other aspects of growing our writing ministry with faculty that are available to help in areas such as blogging, public speaking, indie publishing, social media, and more.
Important: The best way to dig into this information is to go to the Faculty at a Glance page where you’ll find links to all of these charts along with bios and the chart each faculty member completed. I know this may seem overwhelming, but you can eat this elephant “a bite at a time.”
Still need help choosing? Barb is available to help you pre-conference. At the conference, our Appointment Desk team will be glad to provide needed counsel and prayer.
And I am absolutely certain that Jesus is Lord of our appointment system. You can trust Him and His plans for your writing ministry.
