Introducing Our Keynote Speaker: James Watkins

We are excited to announce James Watkins is the keynote speaker for the 2017 Mid-South Christian Writers Conference.

Known for his love of Scripture, fun sense of humor, and gracious encouragement to other writers, Jim is a popular speaker at writers conferences across the country and around the world.

We could tell you more about Jim. But we think you’d rather hear from him.

So here’s Jim’s intro in his own words:

Whatever anyone dares to boast about, I dare to boast about it, too. Are they writers? So am I with 20 books and over 2,000 articles. Are they speakers? So am I. I’ve spoken throughout the United States as well as countries in Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe—in churches, conferences and colleges such as Liberty and Regent Universities. Are they teachers? So am I having taught writing for 15 years at Taylor University.

But if I must boast, I would rather boast about the things that show how weak I am, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my C in Freshman Composition, hundreds of rejection slips, poor sales figures, clinical depression, mild autism, broken relationships, cancer, four surgeries in three hospitals in two months, and . . . well that’s probably enough. But here’s the point: when I am weak, then I am strong.

So, that’s all you really need to know. I’m simply Jim, a writer saved by grace.

We hope to see you on Saturday, March 18, 2017!
