Are you passionate about spiritual writing? We are here to help you gain inspiration and knowledge to empower your writing.
Writing for Your Life is committed to offering many useful resources and services to support spiritual writers. We offer in-person writing conferences and online webinars featuring leading spiritual writers and publishing industry experts. Authors discuss and teach about various aspects of spiritual writing. Industry experts offer advice on how to get published and how to market. We also provide a host of services and resources to support your spiritual writing.
Our conferences / workshops / retreats have a reputation for very high quality speakers, collegiality, and a lack of competitiveness among attendees. Come join us and enjoy the supportive environment!
We offer two types of conferences. Writing for Your Life conferences feature more authors and are focused mostly on “how to write” with a little “how to get published” and “how to market” thrown in. Publishing in Color conferences are intended to help overcome the fact that in today’s spiritual publishing industry several groups are under-represented. So they feature more publishing industry representatives and are focused on “how to get published” with a little “how to market” and “how to write” thrown in. (Learn more about Publishing in Color here.)
