A New Kind of Conference for a New Era in Publishing
The publishing world has changed, so it’s time for a new kind of writers conference. I’m pleased to announce a new format for Writing for the Soul.
We’ve tightened the focus. We’ll concentrate on classes for people writing books. You’ll benefit from deeper courses on crafting powerful fiction and nonfiction.
I’ve also invited experts in platform building who will guide you in promoting yourself and your books. You’ll learn not only about effective speaking and interviews, but also about using the latest techniques with blogs, websites, and social media.
Come prepared to learn. We’ll pack Friday and Saturday with six class times each day. Each hour you’ll have a choice of six courses in four professional tracks-totaling more than 70 individual sessions—taught by an all-star faculty.
Teaching faculty includes:
- James Scott Bell (fiction)
- Laura Christianson (promotion & marketing)
- Brandilyn Collins (fiction)
- Dennis E. Hensley (nonfiction, craft & career)
- Bob Hostetler (nonfiction, craft & career)
- Angela Hunt (fiction)
- Julie-Allyson Ieron (nonfiction, craft & career, promotion & marketing)

- Julie Neils (promotion & marketing)
- Karen O’Connor (nonfiction, craft & career)

Renew your creativity as your learn new techniques, pursue your dreams, and network with other writers—from beginners to pros.
