HAPPY NEW YEARS!! Join Lancaster Christian Writers in Welcoming Author/Speaker Becky Toews January 16, 2016

Happy New Years 2016! Kick off this year’s writing journey by joining Lancaster Christian Writers Saturday, January 16, at Lancaster Alliance Church, 210 Pitney Rd (off Hwy 30 across from Costco) from 9:30AM-12 noon (registration opens at 9). We are delighted to welcome back author and conference speaker Becky Toews.

SPEAKER: Author of Virgin Snow: Leaving Your Mark in the World, Becky Toews has been an adjunct professor at Lancaster Bible College since 2005 where she teaches English composition and Public Speaking. Forged in the fire of being a pastor’s wife, Becky has worked alongside her husband in counseling, teaching, speaking, and everything in between. She also has had an active speaking ministry and conducts Speaking Well workshops for groups as diverse as Lancaster Business Women to Youth With a Mission and various church groups. You may visit her website at
WORKSHOP: “Writing and Speaking: Two Different Animals." Writers no longer have the luxury of staying behind their computers and letting their work speak for itself. More and more, writers are asked to speak, to communicate verbally about what they have written. Yet public speaking continues to poll as people’s number one fear. That's right! Speaking in front of people even beats out death. That can change. In this workshop Becky Toews will give a few tips on how to speak with greater confidence and effectiveness. Don't let your message get marred because of poor verbal skills.

SUPER SATURDAY 2016: And don’t forget to mark your calendar for this year’s one-day writers conference at Lancaster Bible College Saturday, April 16th. Faculty includes bestselling novelist like Loree Lough, Gayle Roper, Mike Dellosso, as well as authors, speakers, editors Hana Haatainen Caye, Dwight Kopp, Marsha Hubler, Michel Chynoweth. A flyer and press release will be heading your way shortly.
