A Guest Post by Patricia Bradley
Are you one of those individuals who have people wandering around in your head? Maybe you even talk to them. Or maybe you have ideas floating in that gray matter that beg to be put on paper. And maybe no one in your family ‘gets’ you. Even your close friends sometime look at you like you’re from another planet.
Well, I have the perfect place for you. The Mid-South Christian Writers Conference will welcome you with open arms. We understand. We talk to the people in our heads, too. Some of us don’t have people we talk to, but we have these wonderful stories to tell about other people, or places and events. And some of us write devotionals. But rest assured, we want to help you take what’s in your head and put it on paper.
At MSCWC we have workshops that range from beginner to advanced to help you and encourage you in your writing journey. In addition, there will be editors, small press publishers, agents and mentors you can connect with to discuss your short and long range plans. And on Friday night, we have a Meet and Greet where you can mingle with the speakers and other writers.
For you fiction writers out there, Johnnie Alexander and I will have a workshop on deepening your characters. We’ll talk about things like writing emotions into your characters and how to make your characters come alive. And that’s just one of the workshops you’ll encounter at the conference.
So, make plans to attend the MidSouth Christian Writers Conference March 15-16, 2019. You will be glad you did.
