A Christian writers’ conference will be March 16 at a Woodstock church, and aspiring authors are invited to come out and learn more about writing.

The Prayer and Praise Christian Fellowship Church off of Bells Ferry Road will host the annual Christian Authors Guild writers’ mini-conference next Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

Known as Coffee and Quill, the mini-conference gives local writers and authors the opportunity to network and sharpen their skills.

The guest speakers for this year’s conference are award-winning author Jenny L. Cote and Georgia District 14 Senator Barry Loudermilk.

A continental breakfast will be offered before the conference at 8:30 a.m.

The event is open to visitors free of charge.

Cote, who also is a speaker and producer, offers creative writing workshops at schools and universities around the country as well as abroad. She will present “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Deadlines” at the conference.

Cote developed an early passion for God, history and young people, according to information about the conference, and she beautifully blends these passions together in her two fantasy fiction series, “The Amazing Tales of Max and Liz” and “Epic Order of the Seven.”

She has been likened to C.S. Lewis by book reviewers and bloggers.

In addition to being a veteran of the United States Air Force, small business owner and dedicated public servant, Senator Loudermilk is also a public and motivational speaker on American history, the Constitution and Christian heritage. He will present “In Their Shoes: Researching Historical Events” at the writer’s conference.

Loudermilk is also the author of “And Then They Prayed: Moments in American History Impacted by Prayer.” He has been featured on national television and radio, as well as numerous newspapers and magazines.

The event will conclude at noon with book signings and announcements of winners from the organization’s writing contests.

With breakfast treats, two enlightening speakers, door prizes, and more, what a great way for writers to begin the weekend. At this event, freelancers, published authors, and even wannabe writers convene to hone their craft. Having attended the event in years' past, I'm expecting another great program.

This event provides education as well as a boost of encouragement for the Christian writer. The Christian Authors Guild is an amazing local resource that welcomes guest speakers all year at the monthly meetings and hosts an annual fall conference too.

This is a terrific event and free too. I have attended each year for the past six years and thoroughly love it!
