Tim Shoemaker – Our Keynote Speaker The Ride of Your Life
This session is a personal testimony about Tim’s writing journey in this roller coaster of life. It will inspire and motivate participants regardless of the genre and audience they write for.
Reaching Boys with Your Writing
In this session Tim shares elements needed (but not always considered) in writing for boys. Naturally, the information works when writing for girls, too. Tim shares principles to strengthen any fiction writing, regardless of the audience, especially what we need to remember if we want boys to read our books.
Jenny L. Cote: Give Me Liberty AND Give Me Deadlines (Adult Session)
As Oswald Chambers writes, “Allow God to have complete liberty in your life when you speak. Before God’s message can liberate other people, His liberation must first be real in you. Gather your material carefully, and then allow God to “set your words on fire” for His glory.” Going beyond books, Jenny shares how she is expanding her brand to develop school curriculum, VBS curriculum, an animated TV/DVD series and movies.
CREATE (Teen Session)
Opening with the popular “Black Coat Story,” Jenny humorously illustrates a really lame story, followed by a really colorful story. She explains how creative writing is like painting a picture in your mind and writing what you see. Animating animal figurines, Jenny brings colorful characters to life, and describes the importance and, yes, FUN of doing research! Learn how to weave in surprises, action, tension, and end well.
