Speaking and Writing From the Heart

Writing Tools

As I’ve traveled over the past three years, I’ve worked alongside Eddie Jones to teach at conferences. We have also created Writers ADVANCE! Boot Camp, a yearly kick off for your writing career. Writers ADVANCE! Is held on the beautiful campus of The Cove, The Billy Graham Training Center, in Asheville, NC. during February. ON PURPOSE. We want to be the inspiration of your writing for the year.


Here we offer two tracks of learning:  Infantry (for the new writer or first time writer) and Officer (for the more experienced writer). This is a weekend conference aimed at intense study, the opportunity to talk with top authors and agents, and networking.


What is unique…what sets Boot Camp apart from other conferences? Two things. The first is the focus on a writers call to write, tithing their talents, giving back so God can use them to His glory. Secondly, it’s only a weekend….Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning. This is like no other in that attendees are tied together by weekly emails, encouragement and prayer and yes, assignments.  With top authors like Ann Tatlock, Yvonne Lehman, Eddie Jones, Edie Melson and more first time conferees learn the in craft of writing and how to maneuver their way through a conference…with the goal – to grow them up into larger conferences.
