Designed for both beginning and experienced writers, it includes instruction on writing and publishing books, magazine articles, novels and other topics. Sessions are geared to writers interested in both religious and secular publishing. This year marks the SCWC’s 26th anniversary.

Along with Bennett and Boyd, 15 other speakers will be on the program. They include literary agents, magazine editors and writers, novelists and others.
