For Writers

Save the Date! The 2021 Writers Conference will be Thursday, November 4 – Sunday, November 7th.

September 12th is the National Day of Encouragement. We would love to hear your stories about the people in your life who have encouraged you over the course of your life and what kind of impact they made.

In 500 words or less (even though we know these individuals deserve a whole novels worth of thanks), tell us about the people or person who encouraged you to reach your goals and accomplishes great things. Submit your piece​ Submit your piece​ »
