14th Annual Christian Writers Seminar

This past week-end I attended the 14th Annual Christian Writers Seminar in Castro Valley, Ca. I loved it! I gained new knowledge that will help me in my writing. I’m getting the first few chapters of my book critiqued by author Cindy Martinusen (yes!), I found out author Marlo Schalesky is practically my neighbor! I learned about blogging from author Tasra Dawson (and won a copy of her latest book, “Real Women Scrap.”) Pat Sikora also taught on blogging and researching on the internet. All valuable and helpful information. Kay Marshall Strom spoke. I love listening to her stories. She’s a great speaker. Jon Drury and all those who put this thing together deserve a round of applause! So many great teachers, so much to learn!!
