A Word about WriteStuff... For the past eight years, the WriteStuff Writers' Conferences and Boot Camps have encouraged and educated writers on both the art and business of publishing. WriteStuff isn't just a writer's conference - it's an inspirational, yet realistic educational experience where writers of all ages can find ways to help them get to the next level of their craft. It's an event where "I've always wanted to try that" writers can take their first steps. Participants receive not just the mechanics of writing, but also the character of what makes a successful writer. And, it's an event that helps writers figure out what exactly they mean by "success." Writers leave WriteStuff with the writing kindling ignited and the chances of having their words find an audience dramatically increased. Our Mission: The WriteStuff mission is to instruct, evaluate and support regional writers across the United States in their creative efforts of expression. The Golden Journey Short Story Competition: WriteStuff Writers' encourages writers in their respective journeys to practice, perfect and actively engage their talents by entering contests such as the Golden Journey Short Story Literary Competition. This writing exercise offers an opportunity to writers from all over the world to test the waters of creative expression. J. Andy Murphy, Founder, WriteStuff Writers.
What's a mother to do, besides dishes and dinners and dirty laundry? Being a mom is one of the very best "jobs" a woman can have, but sometimes it would be nice to slip away for a conference with other moms, right? Grateful mom, and now grandmother, Margery Kisby Warder invites readers to a "virtual" retreat that fits any mom's schedule and nearly every budget. Margery believes we need never outgrow our imaginative gifts, so she's prepared a "women's event" that an attendee holds in her hands. Of course a few friends could gather while little ones are preoccupied and discuss what the virtual guest speakers told about their lives as mothers. Who wouldn't want to hear from Eve? From Mrs. Noah? How about listening to wealthy Sarah and the lessons she's learned after giving birth to Isaac when she's ninety? These celebrity women of the Bible will the the presenters - but if you put the book down, you can come back to the very last word she spoke. Why, that may even be almost as good as getting together with other gals for a ladies' time away. The price of the ticket to this event is whatever you paid for the book. The worth? That depends upon how much you gather from the speakers, the author's comments, and the scriptures that are printed within the book for your easy access to them. Come on, get comfortable, the festival for women is about to begin and no one is going to take that spot reserved for you.
