The Mid-South Christian Writers Conference . . . drum roll, please . . . is this weekend!

On Friday evening, from 6:30 to 8:00, all participants are invited to our Meet and Greet. Let the networking, the friendships, and the chowing down on delicious treats begin!

Saturday’s first session begins at 9 a.m., but you’ll want to arrive early to browse through our bookstore.

Come prepared for a full day of inspiring and humorous keynotes by acclaimed speaker James Watkins, informative workshops, and encouraging appointments with the faculty.

Registration is still open, so it’s not too late to participate. Click on the button then pack your bags.

We can’t wait to see you there!


Meet Johnnie

Johnnie Alexander writes stories of heritage and hope while raccoons and foxes occasionally pass by her window. Where Treasure Hides, her CBA-bestselling debut novel, won the ACFW Genesis Contest (2011). Her first contemporary novel, Where She Belongs, was a Library Journal Pick of the Month. She treasures family memories, classic movies, road trips, and stacks of books. She lives near Memphis with Griff, her happy-go-lucky collie, and Rugby, the princely Papillon who trees those pesky raccoons whenever he gets the chance.

Telling the Story: I Wrote It My Way

You may be a plotter, outlining every scene before you begin, or you may be an organic writer, writing by the seat of your pants, or you may be somewhere in between. Two experienced novelists share tips and ideas for writing fiction the right way—that is, the way that works best for you and for your story.
