It’s official! The Inspire Christian Writers Conference at Mount Hermon will be held March 25-29th, 2022. If you’ve been missing the historic Mt. Hermon Christian Writers Conference … or grieving Mt. Hermon’s difficult decision to pivot from running the event to become more of a conference facility, you are not alone.
There is something special about Mt. Hermon, the beautiful coastal redwoods, and the writing community that has gathered there for fifty years. Something very, very special.
So when it was announced that the original writing conference was ending, we started praying. After a year and a number of wonderful, supportive discussions with Mount Hermon staff, Inspire Christian Writers made the choice to step into the conference gap.
What will it be like? Much of what made the historic conference wonderful will still be there … many of the faculty you’ve come to love (Cynthia Ruchti, Kim Bangs, Mick Silva, James Rubart, Bob Hostetler, etc.) will be there. And some who haven’t taught there in a while, like Cindy Coloma. And we’re bringing some wonderful fresh faces to faculty (have you ever heard Lisa Crayton speak on nonfiction, journalism, or racial sensitivity? Amazing!).
Much else will be the same, too: major morning tracks, afternoon workshops, evening sessions, meetings with agents and publishers and editors. And, of course, great Mt. Hermon food and fellowship with our writing friends (new and old) amidst those ancient trees.
We have some wonderful new offerings, too … the Mentoring Track is one. You will have multiple one-on-one meetings with a top industry professional to talk about every aspect of your journey: your writing, your platform, your marketing options, your message, and your next steps. Space is very limited for this conference add-on, so don’t delay in registering.
Can you tell we’re excited? Because we definitely are. Mount Hermon was the place where many of us got our first contract, signed with an agent, found our direction, met lifelong friends, or had the call of writing confirmed on our lives.
And we can’t wait to see God do all that again.
