Writing Success XIX

Conference Information

The conference cost includes your choice of workshops, lunch, the critique of one manuscript (no more than six pages), and the opportunity to enter nine writing contests. For additional cost, you may submit additional pages of a manuscript for critique.

Coffee and donuts will be available in the fellowship hall during registration. Lunch will be served in two shifts. You may skip lunch to attend a fifth workshop without change in conference fee.

We ask you to honor your choice of lunch or no lunch, but you will not be held to your workshop choices. The registration process helps us to estimate the size of the classroom needed for each workshop, and helps your leaders prepare their handouts, so please be as accurate as possible.

A bookstore will be set up for your participation. You may bring your published works to sell on commis- sion. Please price your books clearly, and present them to the bookstore during Registration. You can find a consignment sheet at the following link:

Writing Success XXIII

Emmanuel Christian Church, Stoneboro, PA


Mike Dellosso


Featured Writer: Mike Dellosso

Keynote Address: "Discovering Your Purpose as a Writer"

Mike Dellosso is no stranger to personal trials. As a child and into early adulthood he struggled terribly with stuttering so profound he often decided it was best to just not talk. By God’s grace he learned to work around that stuttering and now speaks and teaches on a regular basis.

Then, when he was 35, Mike was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer. A year of surgery and chemotherapy later, and again by God’s grace, Mike beat that disease and is now cancer-free. Born in Baltimore,  Mike has been married for sixteen years to his wife, Jen, and they have four daughters ranging in age from fifteen to three.

Mike writes pscyhological thrillers -- what he likes to call "wide-eyed fiction." His books include Rearview from Tyndale House, Fearless, Frantic, Scream, Darkness Follows, Darlington Woods, and The Hunted from Realms (Charisma House), and Mirror Image from Darlington.

A regular speaker/teacher at various writers conferences, Mike is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers, Christian Author's Network, and Colon Cancer Alliance’s speakers bureau. His passion is to motivate and encourage others to be unstoppable in becoming all they were created to be. You can visit his web site at the following link:
