Lancaster Christian Writers Meets This Saturday, April 21

Dear Lancaster Christian Writers:
Happy Easter! (somewhat belated). A reminder that LCW meets this Saturday, April 21, 2012, at Lancaster Evangelical Free Church, 419 Pierson Rd, Lititz, PA, 17543 from 9:30AM-12 noon (registration opens at 9). We will be meeting back in our regular haunt--classrooms A101 and A103 down hall left of main lobby across from kitchen. Novelist, missions journalist and editor Jeanette Windle (okay, that's me!) will be teaching a workshop: "Hook or Elevator Pitch: Grabbing an Editor's Attention in 10 Seconds or Less". Since this is an interactive, hands-on workshop, please do bring your best fiction or non-fiction hook/elevator pitch (25-100words) to share with the group.--or worst to work on. We will be having our regular critique groups as well. If you are new, check out critique guidelines at our blog;
In other news:
1. LCW workshop and devotional leaders:  We have filled up our workshop calendar through June and will be breaking July-August for summer. BUT I would love some volunteers to share an opening devotional April-June. Devotional sharing of our members has been a highlight of LCW. I am always amazed at the talent and depth of spiritual thought that emerges from our group. SO if you have that devotional you've written for publication or a thought for writers you'd like to share, please let me know. , ESPECIALLY for this coming weekend.
3. Super Saturday 2013. Lancaster Bible College hosted our Super Saturday 2012 so delightfully last month, we've already accepted their invitation to host again for 2013. A date has been nailed down for Saturday, April 6th. It isn't too early to get that on your calendar. And if you have suggestions for faculty or workshops, it isn't too early to let me know on that either.
As always, regular news bulletings for LCW can be found at our blogsite:  Until Saturday.
