So have you started packing yet? It’s only three months away, so you’d better get cracking. You know what I’m talking about – the FaithWriters conference to take place at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center in Livonia (Detroit), Michigan, on August 12 & 13.
The message boards are already buzzing with excitement about this year’s conference, which promises to be even better than last year. I know it seems impossible to top last year’s conference, and the “betterness” isn’t because I’ll be teaching two workshops (although, despite being very nervous about my first-ever public speaking event, I have to say I’m teaching on some pretty good topics). Not only are there some pretty dynamic teachers this year (Deb Porter, David Ian, Timmy Boyle, Jan Ackerson), you’ll actually be able to pitch your manuscript to a literary agent’s assistant, who will be standing in for the agent, himself. Pretty cool, right?
I’ll leave the specifics of the workshops and other conference features for another blog post. Today, I want to remind you that this is the final month to get in on the Early Bird discount. So if you know you’ll be attending, you’d be wise to get that registration form in before the deadline of June 5th. Here’s the breakdown:
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT (until June 5th) – Platinum 500 Members – $72 per person. All others: $82
REGULAR RATE (From June 6) – Platinum 500 Members -$82 per person. All others – $92
Included in the cost: All workshops and sessions, and Saturday morning breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack.
Send check or money order, along with completed registration form, to the address listed on the form.
This is a fabulous price for a writers conference! I hope you are able to take advantage of the Early Bird rate. And I REALLY hope to see you in August!
