Write 2 Ignite! 2015

Congratulations to Susan Moger, one of my newest blog readers, for winning an autographed copy of Rose Under Fire. Thanks to all who entered and left comments.

This week I'm posting an additional blog on an upcoming Christian writing conference. If you are interested in attending you can take advantage of the early bird discount.

Without further ado, please welcome my dear friend Jean Hall, founder and organizer of Write2Ignite!.

Jean and I, October 2014

Thanks, Carol, for this opportunity to talk about Write2Ignite!

The Write2Ignite! Conference for Christian Writers of Literature for Children and Young Adults is designed specifically for writers who seek to write from a Christian perspective. Whether your desire is to be published in the general market or Christian market; by major publishing houses or small publishers; or an array of other publishing options, Write2Ignite! is here to  help you.

Are you working on a YA novel? A MG book? Devotionals?  A PB? Nonfiction magazine articles? We’re here to point you in the right direction.

This year our speakers include authors Tim Shoemaker, Karen Whiting, Jenny L.Cote, Vonda SkeltonTorry Martin; artist Tony Snipes, and writing teacher Kim Peterson. An array of editors will meet individually with attendees.

OUR PURPOSE is to educate, encourage and inspire Christian writers while helping them network with publishing professionals. We aim to provide Christians who write for children, youth and adults with practical workshops and help them connect with the publishing industry.

OUR VISION for Write2Ignite! Is to eventually provide conferences, workshops, support groups, webinars and other services to Christians who create, publish, represent or sell literature for children and youth. 

We want you to leave Write2Ignite! 2015 with three things:

·       The knowledge that you heard from God about something specific in your writing and/or personal life

·       New or improved skills to use in writing, illustrating, marketing and/or publishing

·       New or strengthened connections with other writers, illustrators, teachers, librarians, agents, editors, reviewers, and/or book sellers – anyone associated with children’s publishing

Registration is now open. Early Bird Fees are good through February 28, 2015. We offer workshops for adult writers AND a special track with seven workshops for teens to choose from. BTW - we LOVE homeschoolers at Write2Ignite!

You can sign up for our blog updates, register for the conference, and find lots more information at Professional critiques are available for an additional fee.

We hope you’ll check us out and register for our March 27-28, 2015, conference at North Greenville University in Greenville, SC.

Please like us and tweet us @WriteTOignite and friend us on FB at Write2Ignite Conference.
