Writing Conference


Writing Conference Scheduled for June 8-9
            An award-winning novelist and one of America’s most prolific writers — Melanie Dickerson and John Phillips — will give the keynote addresses at the 2018 Southern Christian Writers Conference. It will be held June 8 and 9 in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
            The SCWC is one of the largest writing workshops in the nation. 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 27th anniversary.
            Details on the workshop may be obtained by contacting Joanne Sloan, SCWC Coordinator, by phone at 205-534-0595 or by e-mail at scwc.writers@gmail.com.
            Along with Dickerson and Phillips, 15 other speakers will be on the program. They include literary agents, magazine editors and writers, novelists and others.
            Dickerson has published 14 novels, three of which have won national awards. Her most recent one, “The Silent Songbird,” won the 2017 Christy Award for Young Adult novel. The Christy Award is usually considered the top award for Christian writing.
            Phillips has published more than 100 books, more than 6,500 magazine articles, several thousand newspaper columns, and more than 27,000 photographs.
