Workshop 1

Friday 4:30–5:30pm

Building Your Writing Craft with God

Chris Morris

Chris Morris see bio 

It’s easy to separate the creative elements that we need to have as authors from our spirituality, or at best view God as a consultant in our endeavors. Nothing could be further from the truth. This course outlines how and why God is intimately involved in our writing. Drawing on the experiences of the prophets Zechariah and Habakkuk, we will discover how God guides our thoughts and directs our actions as they relate to creativity. With a deep dive into Genesis, the Psalms, and Ephesians, we will learn the root of creativity, how it is a reflection of God’s heart, and our responsibility to create with the gifts of God.

Making the Most of Your First Writers Conference

Praise, Worship, Jubilee!

Jennifer Saake

Jennifer Saake see bio

The Bible has much to say about the significance of 50 years. As we mark the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference’s Jubilee year, let’s look at how this concept is celebrated in nature’s rhythms. We’ll examine our own hearts as we discover the exciting differences between “praise” and “worship” and how we can freshly experience each of these in our lives. While music may be used to illustrate a few points, this time of learning how to open our hearts to the celebration of God’s beauty and holiness is not your typical “praise and worship” singing session.

Reaching Boys with Your Writing

Tim Shoemaker

Tim Shoemaker see bio

We’ve all heard that boys don’t read as much as girls do… and often that is true. But sometimes boys just aren’t interested in much of the writing out there. We’ll look at the ten “gotta haves” when writing for boys, the ten “kisses of death,” three things women must remember when writing for boys, and more. We'll look at how boys differ from girls in some less obvious ways--and how to use that to strengthen your writing. Not writing for boys? This is still a key workshop to help you understand boys/men ... and make your male characters more realistic.
