NGU to Host Write2Ignite! Conference

Write2Ignite Conference for Christian Writers of Literature for Children and Young Adults is coming to North Greenville University once again, and it's not too late to get in on the networking, fellowship, and professional tips for writers and illustrators!

Check-in and walk-in registration begins at 3:30 pm Friday, March 24 in the Craft-Hemphill lobby, with opening sessions at 4:30 for college age/adults ("What Editors and Agents Are Looking For" - Q & A for the experts) and middle through high school teens: "Becoming A Writer" by NGU alum Daniel Blackaby. After dinner, which includes a Pizza Bash for the teens, a worship session at 7 pm in Hayes Ministry Center will be followed by the 7:30 opening keynote, "Discovering Your Calling," by comedian/author Torry Martin. An informal coffee hour follows, with opportunities to meet the presenters.

Saturday's full schedule includes two keynotes, by artist Lisa Albinus and Daniel Blackaby, and five "Creative Edge" sessions presented by a variety of authors, illustrators, and editors on subjects as diverse as "Sketching Faces" and "2 Good 2 Be True/Good 2 Be Bad: Protagonists and Antagonists." Sessions will include over 20 choices of topics on writing or illustrating craft, creativity and culture, publishing options, effective use of social media, professional protocols for approaching editors and literary agents, and writing for specific audiences or markets, from picture books to YA and fantasy.

Full information on presenters, scheduling, and cost can be found at the Write2Ignite website, which also features an informative blog and other resources.
