2020 Conference News
Many of you have been patiently awaiting information about our 2020 conference. While God knew and planned (Jer 29:11), the first months of 2020 have been a surprise to the rest of us!
While we are still finalizing details, here is an outline of our plan for this year:
- Catholic Writers Conference Online (CWCO) will return in early 2021.
- Our live conference will be moving online for this year, as a livestreamed event, to coincide with the timing of CMN Momentum 2020 from July 14-17.
- We will be at the CMN Momentum 2020 event (the annual tradeshow) in Dallas, TX. Guild members will be able to attend Momentum 2020 at a reduced cost (compared to past CWCL tickets).
- A call for local volunteers, and for conference livestream presenters, will be going out soon.
- The Catholic Arts and Letters Award (CALA) will continue this year, with a live virtual announcement. We'll be following up with more details shortly.
What is the Catholic Writers Conference?
Our conference allows you to connect personally with Catholic publishers and retailers, learn more about the craft of writing, show your work, and network.
Each year we host:
- workshops on marketing and writing
- pitch sessions
- group critique sessions
- CWG Members meeting (guests welcome)
The CWG has been a blessing at both local and national levels. With the encouragement and support from you, I have truly grown as a fledgling writer. I look forward to next year! Paula Babadi
Through all this week's seminars I was so encouraged by such friendly members, and especially the liberty to express our faith throughout the writing process. Colleen Blevins
