- You want your next conference to be more than you ever imagined it could be!
In this course, James L. Rubart takes everything he's learned from the past 14 years of teaching at hundreds of conferences around the country.
"The reason we put The Ultimate Guide to Christian Writing Conferences video course and workbook together is because this is exactly what I wish had been available to me before I went to my first writing conference.
If you’re like me, whether this is your first or fiftieth conference, you want the experience to be the absolute best it can be. You want your publishing dreams to have the greatest chance possible of coming true.
That’s why we developed the course.
Whether you’ve been to zero conferences, or 10+, The Ultimate Guide to Christian Writing Conferences course will teach you what to do before, during, and after your next conference in order to maximize your experience on all levels; professional, personal, and spiritual."
