Last Thursday we shared some of our Write2Ingite staff picks. Here is a sampling of what our attendees are expecting.
I’m looking forward to my first Write2Ignite conference. I’ve heard great things about past conferences and know I will pick up some much-needed tips. I also plan to meet friends I’ve made in an on-line writing group for the first time!
Jarm Del Boccio
I am looking forward to perfecting my craft, camaraderie with fellow authors, critiques and connections with publishing industry professionals. All this, hopefully, will lead to more creativity and direction from God as I listen to his still small voice in my life!
Having spent most of my 38 years of writing for publication focused on nonfiction, I am venturing into the world of fiction. At this year’s Write2Ignite conference, I’m eager to learn how to develop and strengthen my plots and create better characters by attending sessions presented by Nancy Lohr and Kim Peterson. I hope to learn better ways to market my efforts from Tony Snipes, who is always an interesting and helpful presenter. I’m also looking forward to hearing keynoter Edie Melson, whose blog I’ve followed for quite some time.
I am looking forward to meeting others at Write2Ignite and learning from them how they use their gift of writing to glorify and enjoy God, and to encourage others to do the same. I’m excited to ride over and back with a couple of writers, and the time that gives us to get to know one another better. It is a new wonder for me!
I am looking forward to connecting with writers of faith. Hoping to learn more about how to write for adolescents and teenagers about hope and faith.
The Write2Ignite conference has been my annual writing vitamin shot for years. Education and encouragement through its scheduled events and camaraderie in between, fill my cup–but there’s more. Each year I’ve received an unscheduled, tailor-made surprise from God, who knows my heart’s needs. Only He knows what it’ll be this year, but I can’t wait.
Stay tuned for Part III. Next Thursday you’ll hear what our faculty is looking forward to!
