Summer Conference Director’s Letter

Plan Now to Attend Summer Conference August 13–16, 2012

Speak of His Wonders

Psalm 105:2 niv

“OCW Summer Conference is one of the best in the country,” say editors, agents, and conferees.

We offer top-notch writing instruction, manuscript reviews, one-on-one meetings with editors and agents, career mentoring, and networking in a professional yet casual setting. Evening sessions feature outstanding speakers and worship. Aldersgate Conference Center is set in the heart of Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley, the perfect spot to refresh and renew writing goals!

OCW’s conference is also one of the most reasonably priced. Tuition for OCW members will be $365, $425 for nonmembers, and a special youth rate of $325 for those 23 years old and younger. Onsite housing costs vary from $160 to $275 and include meals.

Keep watching our website where we’ll be posting the latest news about coaching classes, faculty, manuscript submissions, mentor appointments, registration and housing.
