I know a lot of our blog readers are also writers so I thought I'd take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about a couple of great opportunities that are coming up. The first one is the Carolina Christian Writers Conference at First Baptist Church in Spartanburg, SC on April 20-21st. For more information and a line up of the faculty, go to www.fbs.org/writersconference
Another great conference is the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference held May 20-24 at Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, NC. It's going to be an AMAZING time. This is the first conference I ever went to and I can honestly say it helped me get published. This website is www.brmcwc.com.
I remember that I saved and saved for that conference, a little here, a little there. I sold stuff on ebay, had a couple of yard sales, asked for money for Christmas and birthday that year. It was a something I REALLY wanted to do so I had to find a way to get there. You see, my husband's in the ministry and we had VERY LITTLE money. I was staying home with my two small children. I think my youngest was two and a half and my daughter was four and a half. It was a real struggle, an investment...and an answer to prayer. And I have to admit, over the years, I've been to many conferences, but that first conference, the one that I had to work so hard to get to, is the one that I remember the fondest.
I'm just curious as to how many ladies on here are published as a direct result of going to a conference?
