2010 Faculty Taking Shape

If you've been following this blog, you know that Virginia Smith is our featured speaker for 2010. Judy Sliger, KCWC coordinator, says the rest of the faculty is almost complete.


Rev. Michael Brewer - sessions on crafting articles.
Wendy Brown - repeating her popular "Employed by God" workshop plus a workshop on using scripture in your writing.
Lettie Kirkpatrick Burress - repeating her beginner sessions, selling reprints.
Tracy Crump - writing for compilations, writing on "tough topics."
Carlton Hughes - writing for children's ministry, plotting (fiction).


Ann H. Gabhart, Christian fiction writer from Lexington, KY will teach fiction workshops on developing characters and revising your work.
David Pierce, writing instructor/mentor, adjunct faculty at Western Kentucky University. He will teach workshops on mystery writing and memoir.
Kim Peterson, writer-at-large for Bethel College (Mishawaka, IN) and a mentor for Christian Writers Guild, will lead sessions on writing for children and young adults.

In the works:

Upper Room will send a representative, but, at this point, we do not know which editor will attend. Jim Stafford will be attending his class reunion in 2010. We anticipate that either Mary Lou Redding or Susan King will represent Upper Room.

By mid-January, we should be ready to announce the workshop titles and any additions to faculty. We do expect to offer more workshop sessions this year, and there will be more fiction. Check back next month to see what develops.
