How to Pitch an Editor
in Fewer Than Five Minutes (MP3)
"When I headed south for my first time at the Write-to-Publish Conference, I was expecting to pitch one book, but learned instead that I am expecting twins (books, that is). How ironic, since the subject is infertility! Thanks Write-to-Publish!"
—Sarah Rollandini

"I'm amazed at the friendliness and accessibility of the faculty—agents, publishers, and editors. They actually want to meet with us."
—Connie Arkins

"If you are interested in following through on God's calling on your life to be a writer, attend a Write-to-Publish Conference to hone your craft and acquire the inside connections you need in the Christian publishing world. You will be taught and surrounded by high-quality people devoted to Kingdom work."
—Heather Roberts

"It was my first writers conference, and I learned so much about writing and some of the opportunities out there. I was most impressed by the friendly, helpful people."
—2016 conferee

"I loved the opportunity to meet editors, publishers, and fellow authors. Everyone was supportive and encouraging. And I loved that the whole conference was God-centered. The classes covered a wide range of topics. Wherever you are in your writing journey, Write-to-Publish is a refreshing and helpful step along the way."
—Judy A. Knox
