If you have to pick one conference to attend this year, this is the one! I love going to American Christian Fiction Writers every September. Of course I enjoy the classes and seeing friends, but the aspect I love the most is the worship time. Standing in a room with writers, editors, agents and praising our Maker is truly extraordinary. We are all trying to serve Him. Rachel Hauck does a fabulous job leading the worship. This year, the Early Bird session is very exciting with Donald Maass coming to talk about making our books even better. I can’t wait! I’ve wanted to attend one of his workshops for a long time. The keynote speaker this year is Debbie Macomber! I’m very excited to hear her speak again.
So this year is in Denver, Colorado. If you’re not a writer but a reader, and you happen to be in the area, then you should come to the book signing on Saturday from 4-5:30. There will be over one hundred authors signing. More information can be found on the ACFW website.
If you can’t attend this year, then mark your calendars for next September. This is a conference not to be missed.
