Southern Christian Writers Conference


We had a wonderful Fall workshop...and we're looking forward to the events coming soon!

The Write Away workshop on Oct. 16 in Orange Beach, Alabama, was a wonderful day of instruction and inspiration. We had attendees participate in-person and also online.

The workshop is the first of our Fall and Winter activities, and we hope you can join us for some (or all) of them.

Coming up, we look forward to:

~ The SCWC Notable Book Awards (deadline to enter is Dec. 15; awards given in February at the Southern Christian Book Expo)

~ Mid-year SCWC Gathering in Birmingham, Alabama, at the Alabama Baptist headquarters. Join us at a free come-and-go reception from 2-4 p.m. 

~ The SCWC Academy, open for courses on January 5. These will be affordable courses on Youtube on a variety of topics.

~ "Write What you Love, Love What you Write" workshop in Mississippi in February (date TBA).

~ The Southern Christian Book Expo in Birmingham in February (date TBA).

Just wanted to write you a brief note and let you know how outstanding the conference was this year (as usual!). Each of the classes I attended was excellent.

I am leaving so greatly encouraged and spiritually refreshed! I have laughed, cried, chuckled, and nodded my head in agreement with the speakers. I can’t wait to get started!

Thank you for doing such a fabulous job coordinating the Southern Christian Writers Conference. I am a retired Professional Meeting Planner so I am able to appreciate what all goes on behind the scenes. It was such a great, safe environment in which to learn. Overall, I can sum up my experience by saying this "see you at the next conference".

I know no other conference that compares with this one. It has been more than expected.

There are a lot of hungry and hurting people. Your ministry helps us reach those folks through the ministry of writing. You and your staff probably cannot know the impact the Lord is having in the lives of hundreds of attendees and those they reach. What the Gaithers are to Christian music, you are to the ministry of writing.
