Writing for Your Life welcomes you to Christ Episcopal Church at 1412 Providence Rd. in Charlotte, NC for our next Writing for Your Life Spiritual Writers’ Conference! The conference is open to all who are interested in spiritual writing, as well as those interested in reading spiritual books (more on that below!).  Speakers include Barbara Brown Taylor, other popular Christian authors, and representatives from the Christian publishing industry. The main conference will take place on March 24-25, 2020, with an optional post-conference seminar – The Business of Being a Spiritual Writer (separate registration required) – on March 26.

In addition to Barbara Brown Taylor, our speakers include: authors Margot Starbuck, J. Dana Trent, Patrice Gopo, and Kathy Izard, and literary agents Kathryn Helmers and Jevon Bolden.  You can learn more about each speaker through the links below. Also participating in the conference will be Park Road Books, CharlotteLit, AK Classics, WordPlay, and authors Kate Rademacher, Niki Hardy, and Erin Hall.

For the first time this conference includes a Reader Track. These will be breakout sessions where our speakers present on some aspect of reading spiritual books, rather than writing them.  But all breakout sessions are open to all attendees, and you will not need to select anything in advance.

Early-bird tuition (through January 31) for the main conference is $329 and includes all General Sessions and Breakout Seminars (both Writer and Reader Tracks), lunches, morning refreshments, small group meetings with speakers and others, and an open-mic session. (After January 31, tuition will be $359.)

Writing for Your Life is pleased to offer 1.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for pastors for this writers’ conference. Writing for Your Life is a member of the Association of Leaders in Lifelong Learning for Ministry (formerly the Society for the Advancement of Continuing Education for Ministry).
