Program

Take your skills to the next level!

Mount Hermon has created a one-of-a-kind atmosphere for writers at every skill level, from unpublished to professional. The program is designed to offer help to writers in a wide span of genres and in every phase of a writer’s career.

There are five program categories at the Christian Writers Conference—all designed to take writers to the next level. In addition, we're offering several recreational activities and other options for attendees to choose from. For more information on each program, click the links below.

  • The Pre-Conference Mentoring Clinic is designed to give writers a concentrated and personal head start on the conference with an industry professional in a mentoring setting.

  • Choose one of the Major Morning Tracks and receive instruction from an industry professional on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday mornings, have plenty of opportunity to apply the principles and techniques in your own writing.

  • Instead of participating in a Major Morning Track, have your work-in-progress evaluated by a skilled professional in a series of small-group sessions. Gain valuable insight from other authors in your group as well. 

  • Choose from among 54 one-hour workshops taught by industry professionals on a variety of topics in the categories of fiction, nonfiction, general writing tips, marketing, publishing, the writing life, business, spiritual life of the writer, and more. Six sessions with seven workshops offered during each one. Can’t decide which workshop to take at a given session? Get the recordings for any workshops you can’t attend in person.

  • Mount Hermon offers conferees various recreational activities and other options, many at no additional charge. Enjoy kayaking, a nature hike, a guided mountain bike ride, one of the Mount Hermon ropes courses, or our Canopy Tour zip line. Pamper yourself with a massage, schedule a photo shoot for a high-quality head shot, or find inspiration and encouragement with our prayer partners in the chapel. NEW THIS YEAR: Visit the indoor or outdoor labyrinth for a special connection with God and divine guidance on your writing journey.

  • For those who still want more at the end of the day, this bonus offering includes special programming on Saturday night, with several options to choose from.
