My all-time fav writers conference is Mount Hermon Christian Writers' Conference. Happens every year, Thurs. to Tues., the week of Palm Sunday. Wonderful writers come, from attendees to faculty and staff. The setting--in the midst of the California Redwoods--is stunning. The spirit is powerful--so steeped in honoring God and each other. And the training that's available is unmatched. Plus it's the only conference (as far as I know) where there's a conference within the conference--the Career Track for published writers.
But most of all, I love the fellowship. So thought I'd share some pix to give you a taste. And if you're thinking about attending a writers' conference next year, make it Mount Hermon. You won't be sorry!
One more thing: why not make today Pray for Christian Camps day? It's been a tough year on them, too. Maybe tougher than a lot of us realize. Too many camps are closing down due to financial issues. So as God brings it to your mind, please offer a prayer that He will be with those camps still making it and help them to endure. Especially places like Mount Hermon, that have been around for so long, blessing people in His name!
