“Only pay for what you need” – does that sound familiar? Our May 2022 writers “conference” will have a different format from our previous online conferences. This time you can pick and choose – you can register separately for the sessions that you find to be most relevant for you. The XX sessions in this conference will “dig deeper” into several different aspects of writing and marketing adult and children’s spiritual books.

The conference takes place May 9-13,2022, all online, but don’t worry – attendees can enjoy recordings of all sessions they register for until August 13, 2022.

You do not need to be an experienced writer to attend. Our conferences have a reputation for very high quality speakers, collegiality, and a lack of competitiveness among attendees, so please do not be intimidated if you have not yet published much. Come join us and enjoy the supportive environment!

Previous Writing for Your Life conferences have been rated, on average, over 4.6 out of 5 by attendees!
