Hello, Christian Writerâ€™s Den friends. This is our monthly Opportunities issue, so letâ€™s see if we can help you get published! Letâ€™s start with writing opportunities compiled just for you.
1.Â Â Bethany House Miraculous Answers to Prayer Call-out deadline has been extended to January 31, 2016!
2.Â Donna Goodrich is working on a caregiver book. While it will include inspiration, devotionals, and humor, she also wants practical information to help caregivers find their way in the labyrinth. You can get guidelines for that project by emailing Donna at: msencourager [@] cox [dot] net
11.Â Lots of writing opps and contests listed at Christian Writers Submission Information by Sally Clark
If youâ€™re serious about writing and speaking, youâ€™ll be serious about attending
When I first started this writing journey, I didnâ€™t have money for conferences, so I asked my family and friends to contribute to my conference fund rather than giving me gifts for Christmas, birthday, Valentineâ€™s Day, anniversary, and Motherâ€™s Day. That went a long way towards my conferences. You might want to try it, too.
Hereâ€™s a list of upcoming writing and/or speaking conferences. Make your plans now to attend at least one conference a year. You wouldnâ€™t expect to get a job without being prepared and qualified, would you? You can be sure your chances of publication increase with your training and experience in writing as well.
