If you’re a published author, this event is a time to gather practical career tips, discuss the state of Christian fiction across publisher divisions, and start a conversation on complex issues and their implications for writing and marketing your books.
If you’re an aspiring writer, these workshops will help you get a comprehensive snapshot of the Christian fiction industry, ask questions from experts, and make connections with publishing professionals.
If you’re involved in the Christian publishing world—whether that’s agenting, editing, promoting, designing, or selling—you can meet the top authors in the category, contribute expertise and questions, and join the discussion of where the genre is and where it’s going.
