A Big Thumbs Up to the 2019 Mid-South Christian Writers Conference

A Guest Post by April Carpenter, Conference Director

The 6th annual Mid-South Christian Writers conference is in the books. It’s finished. It’s over and done.

Now what?

Bob Hostetler did an excellent job! He brought the conference lots of humor as well as great advice. What did you take away from Bob’s keynote addresses? The main thing for me was,  “I can’t do everything.” I can try, but it is not humanly possible. Bob encouraged me “just to try” and “to keep showing up.” He also said that we need to “step in and be open to the new, be opened to be coached and to keep our eyes on the ball.” We have as many chances as it takes.

I was encouraged to see many in attendance who were first-timers to the conference. Whether you are a seasoned writer or just beginning, Bob’s words are true for us all.

We want to hear what you are doing and how this conference has helped you in your writing life. Please inform us of your successes.

My blog post to start our 2019 conference was full of emojis (you should go back and read it–A Day in the Life of a Writer). It only fits that I use an emoji to close out the conference.

I give our conference a BIG thumbs up. We hope you do as well.

May God continue to bless you in your writing career.
