More KCWC History

A friend of mine has a country saying that applies here: "If you see a turtle on a fence-post, you know he didn't get there by himself."

We credit Kate Thomas with the founding of KCWC (formerly called Kentucky Christian Writers Seminar). Kate would be the first to say that she had lots of help from a number of people to start the conference and to keep it going.

Constance Darnell, currently an advisory board member, has helped to build the conference, having been the coordinator for two years. She is a freelance writer and author of Songs For Martha (Harmony House Publishers, 2007). Her work has appeared in Focus on the Family's Clubhouse and Clubhouse Jr. magazines as well as Kentucky Monthly and others. She works for her husband's chiropractic practice in Elizabethtown, KY, as well as providing help with his work as pastor for the Locust Grove Church.

Betty Whitworth is a retired language arts teacher, member of the Breckinridge County Public Library Board, journalist/columnist for THE HERALD NEWS in Hardinsburg, KY, free lance writer, independent editor, Sunday school teacher, Bible teacher, workshop leader, and storyteller. She is also a current advisory board member and former coorindator for KCWC.

The 2008 planning committee meets this coming Saturday, continuing the effort to make the 12th conference the best ever. Please pray for the committee as they plan for 2008, and subscribe to our blog for updates. Also, watch for 2008 details on our website
