"Turning Personal Experience into a Devotional Message”
Wednesday to Friday, 9:15 AM
We will focus on the four essentials for writing an effective daily devotional (three of which also happen to be essential for any good writing—Christian or secular). Included will be information about the devotional market in general as well as specialized writing for our international publication, The Upper Room, the world’s largest daily devotional guide.
"Writing that Gets Published and Read"
Thursday and Friday, 2:30 PM
Do you want to produce writing with such sparkle and verve that it will knock the socks off editors? Do you want them to be falling all over themselves to publish your submission and then clamoring for anything you might propose to write in the future?
A crash course in excellent writing for any genre, this two-part workshop will describe and illustrate the essential elements of style for any genre. Participants will come away with concrete tools for self-editing to produce polished works that will captivate the reader—and attract editors.
