Writing Success XXV

Conference Info

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:

Featured Writer: Cecil Murphey

Keynote Address: "The Conceit of Writing"

Veteran author Cecil (Cec) Murphey’s more than 140 books include the runaway bestseller 90 Minutes in Heaven (with Don Piper) and Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story (with Dr. Ben Carson). His books have sold in the millions and have brought hope and encouragement to countless people around the world.

Cecil has coauthored numerous autobiographies and books for well-known personalities. The all-star lineup includes renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson (Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story—which has been made into a movie starring Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr.—and Think Big); singer B.J. Thomas (In Tune); Franklin Graham (Rebel with a Cause, for which he won the 1995 Gold Medallion Award); and Norman Vaughn, the last survivor of Admiral Byrd’s Antarctica Expedition (With Byrd at the Bottom of the World).

90 Minutes in Heaven (with Don Piper) has sold more than 7 million copies and was the catalyst for several follow-up books. The book stayed on the New York Times’ bestseller list for more than five years and was included on USA Today’s list of top 150 bestselling books in the last 15 years. A full-length feature film, starring Hayden Christensen and Kate Bosworth, released to theaters in September 2015.
