2012 proved to be a difficult year for many of us, and we’re sorry to have to begin 2013 on such a sad note. Circumstances beyond our control have caused us to cancel the Catholic Writers Conference Online, which was scheduled for March 4-15. It was a combination of several factors, and not a decision reached lightly. We had high hopes for this conference and some wonderful workshops planned, but alas, it was not meant to be.
We’d like to thank the generous people who volunteered to present and moderate at CWCO in March; it is through no fault of yours that the conference faltered this year.
In the meantime, we are still going ahead with the writers’ retreat October 13-17, 2013, at St. Francis Retreat Center, Dewitt MI. The speakers will be Michelle Buckman, Al Kresta, Father Matthias Thelen, David Krajewski. We are not sure of the fee yet, but will keep you informed.
In addition, we are also holding the Catholic Writers’ Conference Live on August 7-9, 2013 – Garden State Exhibition Center, Somerset, NJ. We are in need of presenters, and thanks to a generous contribution, are able to pay small stipends to speakers this year. Please contact Ann Lewis at treasurer(at)catholicwritersguild.com if interested. We will also need volunteers, and as always, will provide hotel rooms and free admission.
