Over the past 15 years Eddie Jones and Cindy Sproles have traveled across the country teaching at conferences. They created the Asheville Christian Writers Conference,
as a yearly kick-off for your writing career. ACWC is held on the beautiful campus of The Cove, The Billy Graham Training Center
, in Asheville, NC. during February. ON PURPOSE. Jones and Sproles wanted it to be the inspiration of your writing for the year.
Two tracks of learning are offered: Step Up (for the new writer or first-time writer) and Step Out (for the more experienced writer). This is a weekend conference, aimed at intense study, and offers the opportunity to talk with top authors, agents, and networking.
What is unique…what sets ACWC apart from other conferences? Two things. First is the focus on a writer's call to write, tithing their talents, and giving back so God can use them to His glory. Secondly, it’s only a weekend….Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning. Attendees are tied together by weekly emails, 7 weeks of additional study prior to the conference, encouragement, and prayer. With top authors like Eddie Jones, Edie Melson, Bob Hostetler, Larry Leech, Eva Marie Everson, Vincent Davis, Lynette Eason, and MORE, first-time conferees learn in small group settings, the craft of writing, how to maneuver their way through a conference…with the goal – to grow them up into larger conferences.
