Attend the CLASS Christian Writers Conference to learn the craft of writing and increase your chances of an editor or agent reviewing your work.
Join experienced and new authors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and concentrate on your writing career for four days.
Morning teaching labs with top professionals throughout the week will give you the tools to improve your writing and the inside scoop about the Christian publishing industry.
Workshops and clinics will equip you with the skills to self-edit, prepare a polished manuscript, write a proposal, set up a marketing plan, and pitch to an editor or agent.
Top publishers, agents, representatives, and professional writers are available during the conference for one-on-one consultations.
You’ll be spiritually renewed and inspired from keynotes by high profile Christian leaders and outstanding music from experienced worship leaders.
You can leave the conference as a published author by participating in the CLASS Conference Book Project. Every attendee may submit one chapter for the book and polish the piece with a mentor and a small critique group. At the end of the conference, a book will be published and made available for conferees to purchase at a discount. You do not have to buy books to participate in the project.
The 2014 Writers Conference will be October 23-25 at Albuquerque’s First Baptist Church.

Have you published a few things but just need to encouragement to try a few more? Are you well-established in the writing world and need the fellowship of other writers who know what the writing life is like?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, the CLASS Christian Writers Conference is for YOU!
Dr. Dennis E. “Doc” Hensley has published 54 books – including six novels and eight textbooks – as well as more than 150 short stories and 3,500 newspaper and magazine articles. He’s also a recognized authority on the life and works of twentieth-century author Jack London. No wonder Dr. Hensley is called a master of professional writing.
No one could have that kind of literary output without plenty of knowledge and skill – along with a strategic plan. The good news is, Doc’s mission in life is to share his secrets with others who desire to write.
