Marlene Bagnull, Litt.D., GPCWC Director
The August 3-6 GPCWC, my 33rd year directing,
will again feature a faculty of over 55 authors, editors, and agents; 19 early bird workshops on Wednesday; 8 continuing sessions; and 42 workshops or 3 hands-on clinics! In addition,
those who attend the entire conference are eligible for 4 one-on-one 15-minute appointments with the faculty of their choice with a bonus FIFTH appointment for the first
But GPCWC is about so much more than numbers and
opportunities to strengthen your writing and marketing skills, to get valuable feedback on your work, to pitch to editors and agents, and to form deep friendships with others who share your passion
for words and for the Lord.
GPCWC is about connecting with Him and learning to wait
on Him for the answers He will give us. If you long for your words to make a difference in the lives of your readers, if your heart's desire is to be encouraged and equipped to write about a God who
is real, who is reachable, and who changes lives, you need to come to this year’s GPCWC and trust Him to make it possible!
As I consider the crises facing our nation and world, I
cannot think of a more important assignment than to "write His answer" through screenplays, novels, nonfiction books and articles, poetry, devotionals, and more. I'm praying you will accept His
assignment and make plans now to join us st Cairn University in Langhorne, PA, for our August 3-6, 2016, conference.

"My life is STILL being touched every day by the Philly
I am writing more, and with a greater sense of purpose,
yet with no concern or worries about my writing as I know God will use me
and what I write as He sees fit.
Thank you for the opportunity you provided for so many people
to attend an amazing Christian writer's conference!!!"

Critical days are ahead.
I URGE you to watch Michael Gantt’s keynote,
“The Cross Is the Main Thing,” from last year’s conference.
“The sad fact for America is that
our sin has made God our enemy.
Because of the rejection of God and His Word
and because we have exchanged
the God of Life for the gods of death
America is already under
the Hand of God’s judgment.
“If there is no national confession of sin
and if we cannot find a heart of repentance,
a Holy God will complete his judgment;
either by the complete annihilation
or subjugation of what was once a great
and godly people or by rendering it
completely irrelevant on the world stage.”

Father, please help us not to miss “the signs of the times.”
Help us to humble ourselves and pray
and seek Your face.
