Has your writing dream stalled on you? The jumper cables have arrived!
Join us! The Catholic Writers Guild will hold its 6th Catholic Writers Conference Online February 17-19, 2017. From the practical to the sublime–and probably some ridiculous thrown in there just for fun–this conference will give your writing dreams and goals a boost all from the comfort of your own home. CWCO features low registration cost and NO costs for travel, lodging and meals (I mean, unless you want to take your laptop out for dinner and drinks).
If that’s not enough to tempt you, my first CWCO is where my publishing career got its start. Seriously. I’d been stalled for about six years, then someone invited me to CWCO. That’s where I was contacted by FQP, and that’s what got me the contract for Don’t You Forget About Me. You can read that story here.

Maybe you need more of a tow truck than a battery jump? Hopefully I can be that tow! Humble presenter, at your service…
The Other Side of the Desk: What Being an Editor Taught Me About Being a Writer
(Friday, February 17, 1:30-2:30pm)
Did that editor get my submission? How important are all these formatting rules anyway? Most of all, WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG? Writers have lots of questions when submitting work to and coordinating with editors. This presentation will demystify several aspects of the submission and publishing process while giving you the tools you need to build stronger relationships with the editors in your life, from acquisitions time all the way through those final copy edits.
I attended my first CWCO because someone invited me. This is me inviting you! What are the reasons you think you can’t participate in this conference? Give me a shot at helping you find a way through, and put your “can’ts” in the comments!
