Florida Christian Writers Conference News by Joyce Hart

 I will be attending and teaching a couple of workshops at the Florida Christian Writer’s Conference – March 3rd  –6th.
I received a note from Billie Wilson, the conference director. She is offering $200 scholarships for their conference and she wants the word spread around.    
Billie is offering a Partial Scholarship of $200 for the Conference.   Tuition & Lodging Double occupancy will be $575.  Conference tuition only, $375 with the scholarship.  Registration must be received by February 15, 2011.  You must contact Billie directly, no online registration for this offer.  Email: for an entry form.

Even though it is Florida it can be chilly in March.  One year I wore my leather coat the whole conference because I was so cold.  It would be wise to take sweaters or a light coat, or both.  Business casual is the norm.  This is a good conference and I highly recommend it.
In His service,

I also highly recommend it. FCWC is where I met the editors for my one-year devotional and the two children's books I co-authored.
This year, I'll be leading two workshops on writing for anthologies.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
