North Texas Christian Writers Conference


Attention all writers, aspiring authors, closet novelists and hopeful Pulitzer prize winners. This September 16-17, the Keller Campus of Cross Timbers Community Church hosts the 8th annual North Texas Christian Writers Conference.

This is a two-day, intensive teaching conference that focuses on the improvement of writing skills. All sessions are 75 minutes long, with a 15-minute break in between.

“We get the best Christian speakers in the arena of writing that are available in the country,” said Frank Ball, director of the conference since its inception in 2004. This year, the conference includes 35-elective workshops, private consultations, writing contests, networking opportunities, and special classes on Friday designed specifically for high school students.

The conference is for everyone. Unpublished writers, published writers, aspirating writers…there’s a lot of people who want to write a book, or even just write their personal memoirs for their family.

For registration, the schedule and all the scoop go to NTCW Conference.

  1. Thanks for the information, Dianne. You know, one of the best blessings of being a writer is sharing information and helping each other perfect our craft. I haven’t met a writer yet who isn’t willing to encourage another writer.

  2. First off I would like to say excellent blog!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind
    before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    • I listen to classical music or meditation type music when I write. It helps me get my head out of everything else. Sometimes I listen to it and play solitaire for about 10 minutes to give my conscious mind something to focus on while my thoughts quiet themselves and my creative thoughts are able to gather. I am careful to not let myself spend too much time on games. However, I also know that I cannot force myself to create when the thoughts are not there. Something I do to get the creativity flowing is free writing. Write anything that comes to mind for 10 or 15 minutes. It doesn’t have to be a story line. It can even be a string of detached thoughts. It helps just to get them out and off your mind. A change of scenery can help. Take a walk. Go write at a coffee shop for the afternoon so you’re not distracted by things around you at home. I hope these help. Mostly, keep on writing. 🙂

  3. Someone necessarily help to make severely posts I might state.
    This is the very first time I frequented your website page
    and up to now? I surprised with the analysis you
    made to create this actual post amazing. Wonderful activity!
