Dear conferee –
I believe God has called you to this year’s CCWC – now known as the Write His Answer Conference since we’ve combined the Colorado and Greater Philly conference into one virtual conference this year. No matter whether you’re a beginning or professional writer or whether you write fiction or nonfiction, I expect God will encourage and equip you to “Write His Answer” in ways that will change lives for eternity!
The most important thing you can do to prepare for this year’s CCWC is to seek Him and His will for your writing. I especially want to encourage you to click here for a Bible study on Habakkuk 2:2, our theme verse.

Don’t miss out! Learn how to set yourself apart by attending Dick Bruso’s highly acclaimed story-based Brandstorming session for creating powerful, unique, and enduring brands in a very noisy marketplace.
For well over two decades, Dick has presented his in-demand Brandstorming program all across North America. This year, it’s being offered virtually, at no additional cost, as a special bonus, via Zoom, to all registrants of the 2022 Colorado Christian Writers Conference.
During this dynamic interactive session, Dick will demonstrate (with the assistance of two randomly selected attendees) how you and your writer colleagues can develop brands based on your unique and powerful life stories. You’ll also learn the secret of how to apply the “umbrella branding” approach to encompass all aspects of your career as a professional writer while staying totally congruent with your desired target markets.
