What our attendees are saying:

These words won’t do this conference justice, but attending Taylor University’s Professional Writing Conference 2017 was the most amazing, encouraging, unifying, and empowering experience I’ve ever had. And best of all, it’s so affordable for “poor” writers. This two-day conference is jam-packed with knock-your-socks-off industry information that will push you to the next level without overwhelming you while you’re there. A beautiful opportunity to network, network, network, and to get to know others on a more interpersonal level. –Tisha, author and editor, 2017 attendee

Sproles-2An excellent, truly “professional” conference from beginning to end. A well-thought-out roster of faculty and keynoters. This is a conference you do not want to miss if you want to be published. –Cindy Sproles, author, speaker, managing editor Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas.



From start to finish, this conference proved to be excellent in organization, quality, and standards.  I was especially impressed with the depth of connection to our Christian faith and its underlying foundation in our writing.  And I was equally impressed with the line-up of professionals available to share their depth of knowledge. –Jim, 2017 attendee


Watkins-2This is a conference for those writers serious about getting into print, featuring professional editors, agents and writers who are experts in the craft and marketing for publication. –James N. Watkins, award-winning author and speaker.



It was truly the best conference I have ever attended. The spirituality was there. The fellowship and food were wonderful. Most of all, the quality of the presentations was superb. –Christina, 2017 attendee


Glaz-2This is an awesome conference! Where else can you attend a two-day conference with a super faculty of presenters for less than a hundred bucks?! Bam! Amazing conference! –Linda Glaz, author and literary agent.



This conference impacted my career in countless ways. God is doing great things with this conference. I can’t wait to return! –Laura, 2017 attendee
