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!

The 2018 W2I Resource Manual

Attendees of the 2018 Write2Ignite conference will receive a copy of the conference resource manual. This attractive booklet contains articles, a conference schedule, workshop descriptions, presenters’ bios, and more!

We hope you’re excited about the conference! We can’t wait to meet you and learn alongside you this weekend as we all gather strength and encouragement for the writer’s journey.

Comfort, encouragement, supplies, shelter, information, and friendship are some of the ways that people receive help at key moments. Pilgrim receives physical, social, emotional, and spiritual help as he journeys.

We see the needs of our neighbors who are recovering from storm effects, and we respond as we can while rejoicing in the special aid many are providing. In what ways are you in need of help as you journey toward Write2Ignite 2018? #writingjourney #write2ignite2018 #w2iteens2018

Date: September 17, 2018—September 25, 2018
Appearance: Where can Pilgrim receive help on the journey?
Format: Vlog

Pilgrim seeks comfort, remembering those in danger.

Pilgrim Christian never forgets his family in danger. Although they didn’t accompany him on this journey, he prays for them and for others, both those who are persecuted for their faith (like Faithful) and those who stray from the narrow path.

Like Pilgrim, we continue to pray for NC and SC residents who have been removed from their homes or who face danger in them, while flooding continues. We pray for God’s comfort for those who have lost loved ones. Second Corinthians 1:3–4 says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” (NIV)

Giving thanks, resting for the journey ahead, and waiting for signs to move forward.

As rescue efforts continue for SC and NC coastal residents who anticipate a long journey of rebuilding after flood damage, many are in waiting mode. They know what must be done, but they can’t yet do it. Similarly, Pilgrim’s journey includes times when moving forward isn’t possible, and Pilgrim must wait for God’s intervention through change of circumstances. At other times, Pilgrim’s thinking needs to change: he’s stuck until he recognizes that God gave him tools he has forgotten to use.

A writing conference can help those whose creative projects have been in such a “hold” pattern. What circumstances need to change before you can make progress? What tools has God provided that you haven’t used or even recognized?

Join Pilgrim at Write2Ignite 2018 as we share and learn how to let God direct our writing journeys!
