Dear Email Subscribers,
Some of you received my last blog post in your email box in the form of gobbledygook. So sorry! I had just updated the newsletter part of the Lexington Word Weavers site and it had issues, to say the least. It happened on my personal site as well. Yikes.
But the wonderful people at Agathon Group, who maintain and host my websites (not the email portion), came to my rescue. They rolled the sites back to before things got goofy with the email.
Thus, I’m sending this post out again for those of you who got nonsense rather than the news of this exciting writers conference.
Now to the original post:
Write For Children?
If you write for children, you’ll love this year’s Write2Ignite Conference. (March 24-25 at North Greenville University, SC)
But you need to hurry and register. The Early Bird Discount ends February 15th. (Scholarships are available.)
Write2Ignite is one of the few writers conferences dedicated to writing for children. It’s also one of the few with a Teen Track and training for illustrators.
A Glimpse Into the Conference
Keynote Speaker and Presenter Lisa Albinus is an award-winning multi-media artist. She’ll speak on the increasingly popular art of Mixed Media Journaling. She’ll also teach a class on Sketching Faces and People.
Keynote Speaker and Presenter Daniel Blackaby is an award-winning author and the grandson of Henry Blackaby. (Henry is the author of the powerful Bible Study Experiencing God.) Daniel will speak on The Power of Story as well as teach a class on Writing Fantasy and YA.
Illustrators will want to meet and learn from the immensely talented and inspiring Tony Snipes.
Torry Martin is a must for anyone interested in screenwriting. In fact, as an award-winning author, actor, and comedian, he’s a must for anyone who simply likes to laugh. He’ll lead two classes: Comedy Shorts for Stage or Screen and Free Publicity and Press Kits.
Other opportunities include learning to write for children’s magazines, creating picture books, and imagining like a child.
This is merely a taste of what’s available at this year’s Write2Ignite Conference. Check out their website for the full schedule and list of faculty.
If you’ve felt God calling you to write for children, this reasonably-priced, two-day conference will get you off to a great start.
Or maybe you’ve been writing KidLit for years. This year’s presenters will inspire you and help take you to the next level.
