Getting ready for the 2017 SCWC

2 Apr

It comes every year like clockwork, and it’s right around the corner yet again.

The Southern Christian Writers Conference is a 2-day workshop created by my family more than 20 years ago. Two decades later, we regularly have around 200 attendees and a full slate of speakers on a wide variety of topics for writers of all levels.

This year’s conference will be June 2-3 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, at First Baptist Church.

We have two great keynote speakers–Home Life magazine editor David Bennett and novelist Austin Boyd–who will be speaking on the topics “Everyone has a story…How will you tell yours?” and “Never, never give up!” (they will also each do workshop sessions).

We also have some wonderful agents attending. Tessa Hall of Hartline Literary Agency, and Bruce Barbour and Karen Moore of Literary Management Group will speak and have sessions with attendees.

Then we’ll have magazine writers, social media experts, novelists, editors, and many more speakers presenting sessions on many topics.

(I’ll even be doing a couple of sessions on feature writing and marketing.)

See the full list and descriptions of our 2017 speakers here.

We’d love to have you at the conference, and there is plenty of time to register.

You can check out our website and  register there.  We try and keep the conference reasonable, and I think we’ve succeeded again with 2 days for just $110 if you preregister before May 20 (which also includes your food!)  (Register HERE)

You can keep up with information by following alone on our WEBSITE.

You can also join our FACEBOOK PAGE.

We’d love to have you there!

~~ “I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the writers conference. I am a new author. So this was my first conference to attend, and it was absolutely fabulous! It was incredibly informative, and I’m just grateful for the opportunity to attend. Very well-run and well-organized as well. Thank you for all you do to help other authors. I am planning on coming back next year!” (a SCWC attendee)
