I am looking forward to returning to the Oregon Christian Writers Conference Summer Conference Tuesday August 13. This year I am part of a Media Panel from 2-3 pm called, “Working with—and Perhaps Even for—Your Local News Media and Beyond” with John Fortmeyer, Tom Fuller, Chad McComas, Cornelia Seigneur, Julie Zander.
In addition, I will be meeting with people for what OCW calls Mentoring Appointments. These are a lot of fun and in the past when I have met with writers, they have kept in touch with me. It is a great chance to share hearts and journeys.
This will be my fourth year year speaking at OCW events. I have enjoyed their day conferences leading classes and I have had the chance to speak and lead workshops during past summer events as well. In addition, it’s been fun being a “coach,” leading a four-day all-morning session on non-fiction writing. I am honored they ask me to return and I love collaborating with Oregon Christian Writers. I often promote their work during my Faith & Culture Writers Connections/Conferences as well as at my Writers Connection at church.
If you want to learn more about this year’s conference, being held at the RED LION HOTEL JANTZEN BEACH, located at
909 North Hayden Island Drive in Portland. I still remember the says at the Canby location a few years ago.
Here is the link to this year’s workshops: which will link to other info.
