Conference attendees: To sign up for an appointment, simply scroll down until you see the (1–2) names of people you want to consult. (If you don’t have a way to do that, we’ll have a manned laptop nearby to help you.) Then check the available times, and type your name into an open space. Be sure to show up at the right time!

If editors, presenters, or agents you prefer don’t have any time available, you can still speak to them at the informal reception after Friday evening’s keynote address or visit with them during meal times. (The reception begins at 8:45 pm in the Hayes Ministry Center.) So don’t be shy!

Pilgrim has been approaching the Celestial City for weeks, knowing that on one hill is a place where he’ll find not only rest but a circle of friends and instructors. Fellowship, refreshment, and zeal for companions committed to taking messages of beauty and truth to others, both on the pathway and not yet there, await him.

Date: September 20, 2018—September 27, 2018
Appearance: Nearly there—unexpected blessings where journeys meet
Format: Vlog

O Pilgrim, Where Art Thou?

O Pilgrim, where art thou? A better question might be, Where can we find Pilgrim tomorrow?

The way to his longed-for destination, the Celestial City, passes through many places, some welcome and some not. Fortunately, he expects a blessing when the path enters North Greenville University, where there are mountains in sight and a promise of fellowship, grace-filled conversation, and deeper insight in the ways of sharing intersections between his story and the divine story. Look for him when you enter Write2Ignite Conference!

Sunny Forecast!

We’re two days away from the 2018 Write2Ignite conference! (And there’s still time to register!) Here’s an updated forecast for Friday and Saturday:

Friday (9/21)—Sunny (high: 87, low: 67)

Saturday (9/22)—Sunny (high: 88, low: 67)

For a more detailed look, check out the forecast for this weekend in Tigerville, SC.

Storytelling is active. It’s something all people do: it’s in our DNA. Pilgrim hears others’ stories and tells his own to anyone who will listen. The compulsion to share stories is what we writers have in common. It drives us to think, remember details, write, and get stories out to others.

Thoughts for the journey: pray, prepare, proceed, and practice.

On the journey, Pilgrim takes time to pray, especially after a few hasty decisions put him in harm’s way. Having been instructed, he prepares for future challenges in conversations with fellow travelers, discussing ideas and bringing up Scriptures to keep their focus on God’s truth. Rehearsing these verses during the journey helps Christian and his friends practice telling their story and God’s role in it.
