Tuesday Tidbit: Polish your writing skills at a writers conference

Cecil Murphey says, 

“If your New Year’s resolution 
was to learn how to write 
or to become a better writer, 
one of the best decisions you can make 
is to attend a writers conference.”

In March, Cec will be the keynote speaker at the Blue Lake Christian Writers Retreat held at Blue Lake Camp in Andalusia, Alabama.

Cec is a man I studied under at a writers conference a few years ago, a man with a most remarkable heart and extraordinary skill. He has authored or co-authored more books than any other living writer—135 books and counting. Several have been on the New York Times bestseller list for years at a time.

In addition to two keynote speeches, he will teach three workshops (see below) and will take appointments for one-on-one mentoring.

Cec’s three workshops are Ghostwriting, Memoirs and Autobiographies, and Writing About the Hard Issues.

In his workshop on memoirs and autobiographies, Cec will teach the difference between the two and how to write both.

I can’t think of a better person than Cec to teach a workshop on Writing About the Hard Issues. This dear man has experienced more than his share of hardships—and yet he has survived and thrived and now loves to help others do the same. The conference website describes his workshop this way: 

Because of the pain and the trials in your life, 
you have a message 
that can offer healing and encouragement 
to others
But to write about them effectively 
you must relive the experiences 
and allow old emotions to emerge
We’ll discuss how to make these feelings work for you 
to deeply impact readers.”

Give serious consideration to attending this retreat. It could change your life and your writing.
