Last year for the first time, I was unable to attend ACFW. As a cofounder and cheerleader for this wonderful group, I felt as if I’d missed out on a major event in my life. Nothing beats spending a few days with fellow authors while renewing friendships and meeting the new members, singing God’s praises, honing my craft, sharing my joy of writing, and laughing until my sides ache.
This conference is unique. It is the only conference in the U.S. focused on Christian fiction. Yes, many great conferences offer wonderful workshops on writing fiction, but ACFW brings together top-published authors, editors from most of the well-known Christian publishers and agents with the total emphasis on Christian fiction.
It is a special event, packed full of writing-life-changing experiences as well as experiences that will heighten your spritual needs. Our keynote speakers have fired our spirits through the years—people like Francine Rivers, Liz Curtis Higgs, Karen Ball, and Robin Lee Hatcher — -and this year will be no different with the talents and humor of James Scott Bell. Besides his keynote, his workshops will “knock your socks off” with his amazing plotting classes.
I can’t want to see you at the conference this year in Dallas.
