Can you believe it’s already the middle of April? That means the 2013 FaithWriters conference is just two-and-a-half months away – and the early bird deadline is in just TWO weeks!
Here are the basics:

General Rate: FW Platinum members $85, others $95 – May 1 and following
Price includes Saturday morning breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack, all workshops and options. Price does NOT include transportation or room charges.
Maybe you’re asking why you should attend a conference like this. What are the benefits? Well, as someone who has been to all of the previous FaithWriters Conferences, I can share that just the fellowship is, in my opinion anyway, worth the cost.
But, of course, there are many other benefits as well – some of them new this year! In addition to some wonderful speakers and workshops (watch for a post about them in coming weeks – and check the workshop information here), there are some incredible conference extras that are included in your conference cost.
Upstanding Comedian Timmy Boyle
All those who attended the 2010 and 2011 conferences know just how funny Timmy Boyle
is, and he’s back! We can’t imagine a better way to start our weekend than by letting Tim take the stage and get the ball rolling.
One on One for One
Individual one hour sessions with FaithWriters’ doer-of-almost-everything Deb Porter
to discuss your book idea, get critique, ask for editing help, or whatever else is on your mind. Space is very limited and appointments are essential. See your registration form to reserve a place. (Appointments will be held during workshop sessions.)
Speed Critiquing with Deb Porter and Cori Smelker
You’ve heard of speed dating? Well, welcome to the world of speed critiquing as Deb and Cori (freelance writer and editor) sacrifice their dinner break to give your writing some very special one on one attention. This bonus session has been a hit at our previous conferences, with valuable insight and in-depth critique sheets to take home.
Don’t miss out in 2013. Spaces are limited and appointments are essential! See your registration form to reserve your place.
Book Launch Zone
What a great way to introduce your book to potential readers. If your book has been (or will be) published between January and June, 2013, this is an excellent opportunity to promote it. Spaces are limited andmust be arranged prior to the conference. See registration form for details.
Book Design Critique with TLC
Want to know if your cover design and book layout may be hiding your book’s light under a bushel? We know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but we all do. Is your cover stopping potential readers in their tracks(then scaring them away)? A fifteen minute appointment with TLC will answer those questions and help steer you in the right direction. See your registration form to make an appointment.(Appointments will be held during workshop sessions.)
