February 24 - February 28, 2016

Three Things You Should Know:
There are three things that set Florida Christian Writers Conference apart from the rest.
1. Our NEW Critique Continuing Track. (What's that, you ask? ... We're so glad you did ...) 
The Continuous Critique Track (Must Pre-Register)
If you’ve ever attended a writers conference and thought I wish I could actually work on my current project, this track is for you. Using Word Weavers International critique group guidelines, attendees will have the opportunity to refine their current work-in-progress. For those who aren’t familiar with the WW critique method, pre-conference emails will be sent explaining formatting requirements and critique procedure. Participants must bring six pre-printed copies each, of 4-5 submissions of 1500 words. (That’s a potential 6000-7500 words critiqued. Awesome, right?) Attendees will be placed in groups of no more than 6 and according to genre. 
Space is limited and is on a first come, first served basis to those who register for the entire conference. Come discover what you’re doing right, what needs improvement, and how to make those improvements.

2. Our amazing Book Proposal Studio
Our past conferees have RAVED about this studio. Come early (Wednesday) for a three-plus-hour workshop. Walk in with an idea and walk out with a fully-printed book proposal, ready to show to our illustrious agents and editors at FCWC. For more information, click the link at the top.
3. Our Book Proposal Pitch Workshop
Also held on Wednesday and taught by the amazing Fay Lamb, this workshop teaches you how to determine your work's elevator "pitch." Don't be caught alone with an editor or agent and without your pitch, people! 
This workshop will be held on Wednesday afternoon 2:40 - 5:30, and again on Thursday morning 9:00 - 10:00 (abbreviated version).
It's Not Too Late!
While it is too late to use your $100 discount to the full conference, it's not too late to use your Word Weavers discount (does not apply to commuter rates) of $50. If you are not familiar with this discount, email Eva Marie Everson, FCWC Director, at FMI.
Also ... if you register between now and December 31, 2015, you'll receive the following:
1. Free Flash Drive (chock full of WW notes, workshop notes, faculty bios, etc.)
2. 5% off bookstore purchase (one time use only, but goes toward the entire purchase)
3. Free VIP Breakfasts (where you can hear three of our illustrious faculty members speak just for you)
So ... if you are a WW member, that's a discount of $90 plus 5% off your bookstore purchase!
Where else can you get such a deal?
If you are not a WW member, you still save $25 for the flash drive, $15 for the breakfasts, and 5% for your entire one-time purchase in the bookstore. 
What a deal!
