I have been to all of the US FaithWriters’ conferences, and can tell you that it is a WONDERFUL experience. And, of course, the question usually comes up about this time of year: “Are we having a conference this year?”
The answer: We’re not sure. Right now, the FaithWriters’ folks are trying to gauge interest, to determine, especially in this economy, if it would be feasible.
There’s a poll on the FaithWriters boards (click here) – we’d appreciate you letting us know if you’ll be attending – even if you can’t. There are more details on the post, but here are some basics.
A FaithWriters Conference is a special time of inspiration, encouragement, challenge and friendship. Every year it gets a little better, but the fellowship remains the same.
If held in 2012, the conference will be held from Friday, August 10 to Saturday, August 11, at the Holiday Inn, Livonia, Michigan (our usual stomping ground – just outside Detroit).
It will follow much the same format, with the addition of a market/resource area, one on one appointments with me throughout the entire event, an intensive all morning (or afternoon) specialized workshop (limited numbers), and (hopefully) a book launch event for members with newly published books on Friday night.
The price will be kept as low as possible, probably the same as last year (around $80 to $90 for registration). That includes all selected workshops/sessions, together with breakfast, lunch and afternoon break (death by chocolate, which has to be experienced to believe!)
Please stop by the boards and vote! Are YOU planning to go?
