KINDRED HEART WRITERS displayed this post on Friday, Feb.4 written by Johnnie Donley. Is she excited about the conference? OH YES! We all are looking forward to it and hope we see you there.
Four weeks from today, on Friday, March 4th, we'll be in the midst of the 2011 Florida Christian Writers Conference (March 3rd - 6th). Clella will arrive early in the week so she can be there to welcome the attendees and help them with registration. The rest of us will arrive on Wednesday evening, just in time for supper. Believe me, there'll be lots of hugging, laughing, and interrupting each other before we settle down to eat!
We're busy getting ready. Clella, Karen, and I got together last week to work on a book proposal for a collection of devotions that the five of us have written. We're submitting this proposal to an editor at the conference.
We're also working on our individual proposals, trying to decide on the continuing classes and workshops we want to take, and planning the appointments we want to make with the publishing professionals who'll be attending.
A writers conference is a great place to meet agents, editors, and other writers. It's a great place to find out the latest trends and genre-specific craftsmanship.
And take it from me -- a writers conference is a great place to make significant, lasting friendships.
When the writers conference is held in Leesburg, Florida, you can add sunshine, warmer weather than most of the rest of the country, and confernce director Billie Wilson's southern charm to its appeal.
If you've already registered, be sure and look us up. If you're not, what are you waiting for? It's not too late and we'd love to see you there.
