The Write2Ignite! Conference for Christian Writers of Literature for Children and Young Adults is designed specifically for those who write for Children and Young Adult markets from a Christian perspective.
Whether your desire is to be published in the general market or Christian market; by major publishing houses, small publishers, or an array of other publishing options Write2Ignite! can help you.
Our purpose is to educate, encourage and inspire Christian writers while helping them network with publishing professionals.
Each year the Write2Ignite! Conference is held on the campus of North Greenville University. For more information on North Greenville University and driving directions visit the North Greenville University page HERE.
Our goal is to provide Christians who write for children (and adults!) with training, inspiration and encouragement; and to assist them in networking with each other, and with those who can help them get their works into the hands of children, parents and caregivers.
We envision Write2Ignite! as an organization that provides conferences, workshops, support groups and other services to Christians who create, publish, represent or sell literature for children and youth. We see our role as Write2Ignite! Team members as that of teachers, encouragers, facilitators and inspirers.
We want Write2Ignite! participants to leave our conferences with three things:
The knowledge that they heard from God about something specific in their writing and/or personal lives
New or improved skills to use in writing and/or publishing
New or strengthened connections with other writers, illustrators, teachers, librarians, agents, editors, reviewers, and/or book sellers
We envision Write2Ignite! as eventually becoming an organization for the Southeastern USA, hosting at least two Conferences each year. But, who knows? There is always the possibility that God’s vision is larger than ours.
The Write2Ignite! vision also includes the following:
Smaller, local Write2Ignite! workshops in cities across the Southeast
Smaller critique and/or support groups either face-to-face in various locations, or online
Thriving Write2Ignite! Social Media Groups
Regularly scheduled online Write2Ignite! Chats or video chats
We are continuously amazed at the ways God works to accomplish these things for and through Write2Ignite! We are also amazed at the generous, dedicated volunteers who work selflessly to put God’s plans into place.
