I'm so excited! It's almost here. That event I anticipate all year long!
The Mount Hermon Christian Writers' Conference.
If you've attended, you know exactly what I mean. If you haven't, well...DO SO! This conference not only has the best and biggest faculty and staff every year, but it's situated in the middle of the California Redwoods. From the first day to last, you're surrounded by a community of people who are passionate about words and writing, and by some of God's greatest beauty.
And the music! Oh, friends, the music is glorious. Just take a listen to David Talbott's talent, and imagine an auditorium ringing with the sound of David's music and voices lifted in praise to God.
What's not to love?
Yes, it's an expense, but one well worth the investment in your writing craft and career. Whether you're published or unpublished, if you want guidance, feedback, and encouragement Mount Hermon is the place to find it. In spades. But you'll find something else there as well.
Hearts dedicated to serving God and one another.
It's that spirit that makes this conference truly special. The sense that while we're working to refine writing, to build our careers, there's something deeper underlying every workshop conversation, and gathering. Something good and godly. Something that knits us together, brings us joy and laughter as we learn and share.
Something that stays with you long after you leave.
I've heard it over and over from folks who've attended: what they found at Mount Hermon was far more than they imagined. Yes, they found help for their writing. But more than that, they found friends. And nurture for their souls.
And that, friends, is what it's really all about.
So come join us this year. You won't regret it.
