What a blessed week I had in Atlanta at the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association Conference and the International Christian Retailers Show. It’s now the 3rd Tuesday of the month, and as you know, that usually means a writing instruction piece and writing and conference opportunities.
However, my 7yo granddaughter, Mallory, is here now and I need to concentrate on eating ice cream, going to water parks and pottery and movies, and teaching her the fine art of latch-hook projects. Oh, and we’re writing a book together this week, too: Murphy the Brave.
Writing Opportunities for You!
And one extra opportunity from one of our own: Cindy Jones is looking for great stories for her blog, Living with Purpose. She says, “For everyone that posts a story on my blog from now until the end of the year, their name will go into a drawing for a $25.00 Amazon gift certificate. Â Also, for anyone who sends at least 10 new people to my site, they will receive a small gift book, to be announced, and will go into a drawing for a small canvas blessing painting or purse.” Check out the sidebar at Cindy Jones’ website for more information.
(And don’t forget to let me know when you get something published. We want to celebrate with you in the Kudos!)
NCompass Writing Retreat Announces New DEEP Discount!
The Cec Murphey Scholarships were awarded this week for the September 29-October 2, 2011 NCompass Writing Retreat. Thank you to Cec and the Cecil Murphey Scholarship Fund for the two full tuition packages he provided. We couldn’t have done it without him!
Edie Melson and I have heard from many of you that finances are creating a real struggle this year. We also heard that some of you desire more classes, rather than such large writing blocks.
Well, you spoke and we listened! We’ve decided to deeply discount the NCompass Writing Retreat to only $300 until August 1! Yes, that’s right. From now through Monday, August 1, the total package for the retreat will be $300. Beginning August 2, the fee will still be only $350!
And for those who want more classes on all things digital, our own #1 Amazon bestselling author, Edie Melson, will teach classes on social networking, ebooks, blogging, and more!
Lodging will be assigned on a first-requested, first-assigned basis, so don’t delay! Check out all the new details at NCompass.co.
