Mark Your Calendar for LCW Meeting Saturday, Nov. 19th

Dear Lancaster Christian Writers:

Our November meeiting is fast approaching Saturday, November 19th, 2011, at Lancaster Evangelical Free Church, 419 Pierson Rd, Lititz, PA, 17543 from 9:30AM-12 noon (registration opens at 9).   PLEASE READ THIS THROUGH AS THERE IS A LOT OF LCW NEWS.

I will NOT be at the meeting, as my husband and I will be on the road for a month of speaking engagements across northwestern US.  We are privileged to have journalist and editor Jeannette Scott chairing the meeting. Just one caveat: there will be no hot drinks setup, so you may want to swing by Starbucks on the way.

Joyce Tilney, editor of Christian newspaper The Voice of Grace and Truth, will be sharing a workshop on the power of vision and responsibility of the Christian author as write His answers. The founder of Women of God Ministries, Joyce Tilney has traveled and taught throughout Europe, Asia and China living in Scotland with her family for 11 years. She has authored the non-fiction books, Leah: The Substitute Bride, Eve: In The Right Place, Our of Position and
Jochebed, A Woman of Faith Who Brought Deliverance to Her Nation.

We will also again be offering opportunity for ALL LCW members attending to showcase their own titles at each meeting. With Christmas coming up, here's a chance for that personalized and economic gift. AND we'll be giving time for peer critique groups (sorry those got a little squeeze in last month with two workshops!). PLEASE remember to bring ten copies and no more than 1500 words if you plan to participate

NOTE OF CAUTION:  I will do my best to send out a final reminder before the November 19th meeting, but can't guarantee email access. SO please do put this on your calendar and check for regular updates the LCW blog:

SUPER SATURDAY 2012!!! And it isn't too early to put Super Saturday 2012 on your calendar. We have just confirmed a date: Saturday, March 24, 2012. Due to a scheduling conflict, we will be shifting our venue to Lancaster Bible College, which has graciously offered to host us this year. Of faculty already confirmed, we have a fabulous lineup, including award-winning novelists Gayle Roper, Tracy Higley, and Mike Dellosso, non-fiction children and women's author Karen Whiting, freelance editor Carol Cool, and author, editor, and founder of Greater Philly Christian Writers Conference Marlene Bagnull.
