Blue Ridge Autumn in the Mountains Christian Novelist Retreat
October 16-20, 2016
October is the peak season for leaf color in the mountains of western North Carolina and the perfect time for novelists to come together for inspiration and improving on the skills and gifts God has made available to us.
Relax on 1,300 acres of Appalachian peace and quiet. And if you get tired of relaxing, enjoy tennis, hiking, laser tag, a climbing wall, disc golf, volleyball, and more. There’s also miniature golf or the quaint little craft stores in neighboring Black Mountain. And Asheville is a short drive away, where you can visit the Biltmore Estate or Billy Graham’s Training Center at The Cove.
This is the perfect setting for a time of improving the craft of novel writing, fellowship with other novelists, write, discuss, and critique.
All novelists are welcome to come and learn the craft that applies to all novel writing. The faculty is Christian and some emphasis will be directed to the CBA market.
Ridgecrest Novelist Pricing: See Ridgecrest site

Christian Communicators.Conference’s mission is to educate, validate, and launch women in their speaking ministry.
Our goals for the CC conferences are:
*to create intimate environments for mental, emotional, spiritual, and professional growth as Christian speaker
*to build a support sisterhood that builds up, lifts up, and encourages one another along in a speaker’s business/ministry
*to deliver proven methods of organizing presentations, adding humor, refining voice control, and bringing animation to talks, testimonies, and stories
*to learn business etiquette, professional protocols, and how to make the audience like you before saying one word from the podium
*to go beyond preparing a speech to address media and promotional materials
