The Art of Writing Conference + Christy Award Gala Dinner:  $99  **BEST DEAL**


The Art of Writing, held from 1-5 pm on November 8, is designed to bring Christian writers, creatives, storytellers and publishing curators together for a half-day of intensive seminars that celebrate the creative life, provide practical tips for overcoming challenges in a rapidly-changing industry, and answer questions authors are asking.  Speakers include Andrew Peterson (author, The Rabbit Room), Theon Hill, Ph.D., Carrie Schmidt (Reading is my SuperPower blogger), Cynthia Ruchti (ACFW, agent, author), and a Christian publishing panel.


After the sessions, attendees will be given time to mingle with authors, editors, and industry professionals before the Christy Awards Gala, honoring excellence in Christian fiction and announcing the 2017 winners of The Christy Award. Hosted by award-winning author and radio host Chris Fabry, the gala will feature New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury as well as musician and writer Andrew Peterson.
