WRITE DEEPLY, READ DEEPLY, LIVE DEEPLY – We all want to write stories that leap off the page and into the readers’ hearts, but how do we dig deep enough? Join author Roseanna White as she shares the secrets of writing that resonates… by starting the process long before you sit down to write.
CHRISTIAN WRITING IN A POST-CHRISTIAN WORLD – In ‘A Strange New World’, Carl Truman describes the years of process that has led us to a place where Christianity is no longer the dominant influence in Western Society – even in some circles being considered a harmful religion. For many of us, it is a strange new world, and we’ve seen the changes emerge in our lifetime. What does it mean for a Christian hoping to communicate the hope and love of God in a world which has become at best suspicious, and at worst aggressive towards the message of our faith?
HOPES, DREAMS, EXPECTATIONS AND DISAPPOINTMENTS – In this session, Meredith Resce will discuss the place where all writers start: the place of hopes and dreams. The journey from bright idea to published work is driven by expectations and if it’s a normal journey, will meet with obstacles, challenges, difficulties and sometimes perceived failures. Who is responsible for our success? What is success? How do we process perceived failures? With a panel of experienced authors, editors and an agent, dive deeper into understanding the process.
