Keynoters Named for 2010 Conference

Conference Director Billie Wilson and her team are hard at work planning the 2010 Florida Christian Writers' Conference, scheduled for March 4-7 at beautiful Lake Yale Conference Center in Leesburg.

If, like me, you're from a non-Florida locale (I live near Seattle, WA), Lake Yale is about a 1 1/2-hour drive from the Orlando airport.

And now, for the announcement of 2010s keynoters...

...drumroll, please...

Jerry Jenkins and Cecil "Cec" Murphey!

The FCWC is growing to be the premier Christian writers' conference on the East Coast; Billie has secured commitments from four editors who've never attended the conference before:
  • Sherri Langton, editor with Bible Advocate
  • David Long, editor with Bethany House Publishers
  • Jeff Gerke, publisher of Marcher Lord Press
  • Suzette Jordan, editor of JourneyForth

And there's more!

Two new continuing classes (6 sessions each, offered daily throughout the conference) are scheduled:
  1. Screenwriting, with Zena Dell Lowe
  2. Branding Yourself for Maximum Impact, with Laura Christianson of Blogging Bistro
(that's me)

And that's not all. Three mentoring tracks will be offered:
  1. Fiction, with Ken Kuhlken
  2. Fiction, with Eva Marie Everson
  3. Non-Fiction, with Janis Whipple
