Join us for the 2022 Asheville Christian Writers Conference

   February 18, 19, and 20, 2022


The Asheville Christian Writers Conference is not a level of writing – it’s a battle cry. God calls us to step up and answer with the best work possible using the talents He has given. We are called together to focus our hearts on the task Christ assigned us . . . to strengthen our ties with one another and hone our craft of writing so we might effectively spread the Word of God through fiction and non-fiction books, screenplays, scripts, articles, and blogs.

ACWC is not a level of writing – it’s a battle cry. Past attendees have gone on to write for Inspire A Fire, Christian Devotions, CBN Devotions, the Upper Room, and Inspiration.org. Other attendees have received book contracts from Iron Stream Media, Thomas Nelson, Tyndale, and other book publishers.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

ACWC is held in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Weather is something we cannot predict and since our conference is a winter conference, we have made arrangements for you to secure travel insurance should you chose to do so. We have yet to be snowed out, but it’s important you realize ACWC continues, regardless of the weather. If you fear that snow could be an issue, then you may purchase travel insurance on your own. ACWC cannot refund conference registrations due to weather.  ACWC is under contract with the Cove, and registrations must be paid and are non-refundable after a certain point. 

AIG Insurance offers a very affordable travel insurance (anywhere from $25-$90 depending on your age, amount to cover, and the state you live in).  As we noted – weather has never been an issue, but we don’t want you to be out your registration should you feel you cannot make the trip.

You may contact AIG at 1-800-826-4919. ACWC makes no money from the sale of travel insurance. This number is provided merely as a convenience to our conferees. Should you choose to purchase the insurance it is your responsibility to flesh out all the details.

The Cove’s Policy on Children
The Cove is a christian Adult Retreat Center meant for personal restoration and conferences. Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to stay on campus. There are personal retreats and additional conferences running along side ACWC. Please respect this policy. Of course there is an exception to every rule. Teens 15 and over are permitted to attend Writers Boot Camp. They must be accompanied by a paying adult and are required to attend conference Classes. If you have a teen who wishes to attend boot camp please contact Cindy so she can secure the proper permissions for this attendee. The rate is the same  as is an adult.

Please do not ask us about bringing your children. It will only force us to say no.

Unfortunately, ACWC cannot be used for family accommodations while our conference is in session. Three hotels are located at the entrance of the Cove where families can stay and then enjoy a long weekend in beautiful Asheville. All individuals must be registered and attending the conference in order to stay on the premises of the Cove. (This is not us, this is the 501(c )3 status requirements for The Cove.) We ask you respect that and not put us in a position to have to say no.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations can be made prior to January 4 with full reimbursement. Cancellations from January 1-10 will result in a refund less $75. Cancellations January 11-18, 1/2 the conference rate, and after January 19 fees are non-refundable.

One Final Note

3/19/2021 7:05:00 PM BY Cindy Sproles

2022 Registration is OPEN!

Our website is updated and ready to accept registrations for 2022. 

You will notice we have a button for DEPOSIT. You may place a $150 deposit on the room size you wish (double or single). That amount will be subtracted from your total amount in the fall. We generally break that final amount into 2 pmts. in order to make it more affordable for you. If you paid a $25 pre-deposit, that will be subtracted from your final amount. Remember, the $25 is non-refundable after December. We apply to our scholarship funds.

If you attended the Cove in person, you saw how beautiful the venue is and you know that between the venue and our conference it is well worth the registration. So don't let finances stop you from registering. We do our best to make this affordable by breaking it into payments for you. Begin saving a few dollars a week. Give up a McDonalds visit or a day of Starbucks. We found years ago from our own personal experience, that if folks want something, they'll find a way to have it. So save here and there. You can do it and we can spend another weekend learning. 

Our faculty is rotating this next year and you'll see a few familiar faces but you'll also see some new ones. We can hardly wait.

I am listing the conference payment links for you. Please note the Double Room Deposit link is being repaired. It should be working by Monday afternoon.

Double Room $150 Deposit (This link is being repaired and should work by Monday.)

I hope that you saw how much of a ministry this is for Eddie and myself...and for our faculty. Every single one stressed the love of Christ, first and foremost. They have the right hearts.
 
So until 2022, we will miss you but we will not stop praying for you. May the Lord Bless You. - Amen.

This is our prayer for you this year! Now and forever!
