WorDshops Near You!

We have an exciting line up of ‘WorDshops’ coming your way this spring. What is a WorDshop? Think of it as a ‘mini-conference’ – a day of speakers and workshops geared to encouraging and assisting both new and seasoned writers in their craft and calling. It’s a wonderful way to connect with other writers in your area, and you’re sure to come away inspired and equipped.

This year there are several WorDshops planned across western Canada, including events in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. (See the listing below or go to the Inscribe website – http://inscribe.org/events/wordshops ) The overall theme for 2017 is ‘Write Words’, but each event has its own flair and features seasoned and award winning Canadian Christian writers as keynote presenters. As well, each WorDshop includes a variety of break out workshops.

For more information, visit the Inscribe website. Registration is online and is a two-step process. First, fill out the application form. Then, go to the online store and pay for your session. You can also register at the door, although there is a discount for registering online. Local authors that attend have the opportunity to sell their books, and there are door prizes and other incentives, too.

If you’re looking for a way to connect with other authors of faith, or if you need some inspiration, why not come to the WorDshop nearest you?

  1. What an exciting line-up! (I get to organize the food for the Edmonton one!) I hope that next year we can host a few WorDshops out east. Members, do you realize Tracy (our InScribe VP) will help you set up a WorDshop, show you how to find speakers, advertise, etc. and that we can even pay a venue deposit up front if need be? I know our eastern members would love a chance to attend a WorDshop and meet each other. Anyone interested, contact VP@incribe.org .

  2. Wish I had wings so I could attend each one!

  3. Neat idea, Marnie. You could pick me up in Barrhead and we could fly together.
