If you write, or read, books that matter – books with substance and soul – then this is the place for you.

Writing for Your Life welcomes you to Colonial Church at 6200 Colonial Way in Edina, Minnesota for our 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 April 27-28, 2020, with an optional post-conference seminar – The Business of Being a Spiritual Writer (separate registration required) – on April 29.

In addition to Barbara Brown Taylor, our speakers include: authors Lori Erickson, Sophfronia Scott, Tony Jones, and Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew, publishing editors Lisa Kloskin (Fortress Press) and Naomi Krueger (Beaming Books), and Writing for Your Life’s Brian Allain.  You can learn more about each speaker through the links below.

We are pleased to note that this conference includes a Reader Track. These will be breakout sessions where our speakers offer presentations on 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 March 1) for the main conference is $325 and includes all General Sessions and Breakout Seminars (both Writer and Reader Tracks), morning refreshments, small group meetings with speakers and others, and an open-mic session. (After March 1, tuition will be $355.)
