If you’ve attended the Mid-South Christian Writers Conference, you know that our sessions are held in a newer section of Collierville, Tennessee, which is a suburb of Memphis.

But if you’re traveling from out of town, you might want to allow an extra day to visit Collierville’s quaint older section, which was rated America’s Best Main Street by Parade magazine.

As the announcement says:

“Start your day by the old train depot in this town (pop. 47,333) outside Memphis and you’ll likely meet Joseph Johnson, who peddles produce from the back of his van.” 

Read what Mr. Johnson, a lifelong resident, has to say about his hometown in the Parade announcement.

We know you’ll enjoy an extra day or two in our fine city!
