1.) Write to Publish - June 17-20, 2020, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois
I have visited Write to Publish as a faculty member and had a wonderful time not only teaching there, but also getting to meet with industry colleagues and eat with fellow attendees. Plus, the campus gave me flashbacks to my college days.
2.) North Carolina Christian Writers Conference - March 4-6, 2021, Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Liberty, North Carolina
I LOVED participating in this newer conference. Held at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, the lovely volunteers who blessed us were always smiling and the conference was a cozy time of learning, networking, and making new friends.
3.) Florida Christian Writers Conference - October 21–25, 2020, Lake Yale Conference Center, Leesburg, Florida
