Pastors Writers Track

Dear Pastors: So You Want to Write a Book?

Florida Christian Writers Conference is proud to present its second annual PASTORS TRACK at FCWC. The pastors track is not only designed especially for pastors, it also:

1. Begins on Thursday afternoon and ends on Sunday. 

2. Is offered at a discounted rate, which is our way of thanking pastors for their service to the church.
This year, Bob Hostetler leads the track, providing the wit and wisdom only Bob can provide. In 4 3-hour continuing sessions, he will guide you through what you need to know to bring your ideas to the page, your page to manuscript format, and your manuscript to publication. You will also discuss the pinnacles and pitfalls of being a pastor who is also a writer (or vice versa!).
