If you have been hanging around the FaithWriters Forums or the FaithWriters Facebook group lately,  you probably know that there has been talk of some sort of in-person get-together of FaithWriters folks in the future. Well, it’s official. It will be happening!

While dates and details are not yet firmed up, the FaithWriters Writer Celebration/Gathering will be happening in July 2016 in McDonough, Georgia (about half an hour south of Atlanta). According to Deb Porter (the face of FaithWriters and so many other things),  this is not going to be a “conference,” as such, but rather a gathering of the FaithWriters’ family, to help, encourage, and love on one another. A place to develop skills, learn some new ones, or just hang out with likeminded people and get some writing done. Very low key. No class room type lessons.

God willing, Deb herself will be there to spend one on one time with you regarding your manuscripts, and will be looking for fresh talent to publish. There is also talk of small groups of hands on subjects led by attendees with experience in that subject, and other writing groups of like-minded people (poets, songwriters, novelists, etc.). Lots happening, but you can do as much or as little as you want. Fellowship is just as important.

But most important of all, this will be a time to be blessed and be a blessing. FaithWriters members sharing their skills with one another and having lots of fun at the same time.

The date has not been set in concrete yet, so stay tuned for more details as they unfold. Watch the blog, plus the FW Writer Celebration area on the FaithWriters forums, for updates. And, God willing – see ya in July!
