How to Take Your Writing to the Next Level This Weekend

Are you an aspiring writer dreaming about putting your ideas on paper? Are you afraid to commit to calling yourself a writer? Are you a published writer in a slump? Are you a writer looking for a great place to learn more, build your network, and fellowship with like-minded creative folks?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, the West Coast Christian Writers conference is the event that can help you take your writing to the next level.

Quality teaching and encouragement from fellow Christian writers in a welcoming atmosphere create the perfect environment for spiritual and educational growth.

Be inspired to write and connect with readers fearlessly as Kathi Lipp, keynote speaker and author of 10 books, shares her experience from the trenches.

The WCCW conference offers four tracks to choose from.

Explore the art of creating captivating characters, intriguing settings, and riveting dialogue with award-winning author of 32 novels, Adina Senft.

Learn to “make your writing sizzle” with author Bill Giavannetti, Senior Pastor at Neighborhood Church in Redding with four published books under his belt. He’ll equip nonfiction writers to “touch both the head with truth and the heart with grace.”

Discover creative ways to organize ideas, uncover unique publishing opportunities, and develop effective marketing strategies as Marci Seither unpacks 15 years of knowledge during the “Fast track to Publishing” session.

Navigate through an interactive track designed to help writers and speakers build and maintain a strong platform with greater marketing opportunities with Keri Wyatt Kent, a leader armed with 20 years of freelance writing experience.

Learn “New Ways to Unleash the Gospel” through Ted-Style Talks presented by Brent Dusing, Silicon Valley entrepreneur and founder of Lightside Games.

The WCCW conference also offers free walk-in coaching and critiques, an on-site prayer team, a story contest, a conference bookstore, and opportunities to connect with online writing communities.

We’ll enter God’s presence through the musical anointing of Tapestry, a joy-filled worship band led by Jane Liddle, a worship pastor at Crossroads Church in San Jose, California.

We’ll be inspired throughout this learning adventure by our emcee Christine Ingebretson, Women’s Minister at Freemont Community Church and yearly retreat leader at Mount Hermon.

Why should writers invest in a weekend at the first annual West Coast Christian Writers conference?

These power-packed workshops can open the doors to getting the stories God’s placed on your heart into the hands of readers.

After attending a weekend conference with writing workshops taught by several of the WCCW founders and teaching team, I published my first short story and began learning how to turn my writing dreams into ministry opportunities. I’ve had multiple projects published since then and am currently working on a book proposal for an idea sparked in the halls of my first writers’ conference.

The connections I’ve made have turned into a loving network of writers prayerfully encouraging me when I forget my writing journey, like my spiritual walk, was never meant to be experienced in isolation.

Not a moment, or a penny, will be wasted if you decide to join us on February 20-21 at the West Coast Christian Writers conference in Fremont, California.

Register today at for only $149, payable online and at the door this weekend. Come prepared to worship, learn, laugh, fellowship, and take your writing to the next level.
