Appointments are 10 minutes long and scheduled during workshop periods and continuing sessions when the faculty member is not teaching. The conference schedule makes it impossible to offer appointments other than during these times, but please do NOT feel you need to miss an entire workshop to keep your appointments. Your workshop instructor will understand if you arrive late or leave before the end of the workshop. And the conference is being recorded!
I’ve never forgotten my first writers’ conference . . .
It was a huge sacrifice financially. I was beyond nervous!
My first experience at the conference – a panel of editors – only heightened my anxiety. Even though I’d not forgotten the shorthand I learned in high school (yes, I know that dates me), I couldn’t begin to write down everything the editors said they were—and were not—wanting to see.
Trying to choose was even more stressful. And there was no guarantee that those I chose would want to meet with me.
At the Colorado and Greater Philly Christian Writers Conference you get to choose who you want to meet with.
There’s no last-minute deciding once you arrive or long lines. Instead, you submit your appointment requests pre-conference. The earlier you register, the better opportunity you’ll have of getting your top choices.
Now for some important how-to info.
Before you complete your Appointment Request form (available March 1):
I came away from the Conference with HOPE and a to-do list.
I believe that God allowed me to meet with exactly the right people.
I ended up speaking with eight people, as God kept directing, and orchestrating.

Deadlines – Until April 1 Barb will schedule appointments in the order that you registered. After April 1 she will book appointments in the order she receives your form. To avoid the last minute scramble, all appointment requests MUST be received by May 1. Unless other arrangements have been made, you must be paid in full for your appointments to be scheduled
When you arrive at the conference, you will find out who you are meeting with and when. If you do not get your first choice(s), do not despair. The Lord knows the plans He has for you and your writing (Jeremiah 29:11). Just as you are trusting Him for salvation and life eternal, you can trust Him with the manuscript you feel called to write.

Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for GOD's voice in everything you do,
everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all.
