"The August 3-6 GPCWC will feature a faculty of over 55 authors, editors, and agents; 19 early bird workshops on Wednesday; 8 continuing sessions; and 42 workshops or 3 hands-on clinics.

But GPCWC is about so much more than numbers and opportunities to strengthen your writing and marketing skills, to get valuable feedback on your work, to pitch to editors and agents, and to form deep friendships with others who share your passion for words and for the Lord.

GPCWC is about connecting with Him and learning to wait on Him for the answers He will give us. If you long for your words to make a difference in the lives of your readers, if your heart's desire is to be encouraged and equipped to write about a God who is real, who is reachable, and who changes lives, you need to come to this year’s GPCWC and trust Him to make it possible!"
