A 700-member strong group of Christian authors, editors, agents, publicists and aspiring writers will be holding their 4th Annual Conference next week on Sept. 15-18 at Sheraton Music City in Nashville, Tenn.

Dubbed, “The Premier Christian Fiction Conference” by its organizers, the 2005 ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) conference will feature Executive Editor of Zondervan and best-selling novelist Karen Ball as the keynote speaker.

Over 15 publishing houses, including Bethany House, Tyndale, and Howard Publishing, will be represented at the conference, which will feature, “a long and talented list of authors, editors, and agents, several top-quality continuing sessions with your favorite authors, workshops, and late night chats galore, a top-notch bookstore featuring your favorite authors’ books, and all the food fun and fellowship you can imagine,” according to the ACFW website.

“The ACFW conference is a lively event filled with friends, fellowship, frivolity, food, and a lot of fun,” says Steve Laube, Literary Agent. “In addition it is a great place to learn about the craft from some of the top writers in the industry. This conference is never a disappointment and always an encouragement.”

Workshop titles at the conference include “Fiction 101,” “Nine Steps to a Lean Mean Proposal,” “Turning Your Book into a Movie,” and others. Other speakers featured at the event include Tracey Bateman, Gayle Roper, Robin Lee Hatcher, Linda Windsor, and more.
