Portals Writers Conference set for June 20-23

Wednesday, May 1, 2013
  • Award-winning writer Paula Huston will be among the workshop leaders and keynote speakers at the Portals Writers Conference.

 

In 2012, nearly 100 writers came to the Portals Writers Conference at Corban University to learn more about their craft and how to get published.

The second annual writers’ conference is scheduled for June 20 to 23 and features both new and returning professional writers. This includes author Paula Huston who wrote “”Daughters of Song” and “The Holy Way: Practices for a Simple Life” and singer/songwriterBill Jolliff, who wrote the hit song “Laughlin Boy,” which was performed by folk music star Tracy Grammer and mixed media journalist and bloggerTim Akimoff.

The Portals Writers Conference features more than 15 workshops each day as well as keynote lectures and conversations, informal gatherings and opportunities for one-on-one mentorship. The conference fee includes all meals and lodging on Corban’s beautiful Salem, Ore. campus.

“Whether you are a veteran writer or a beginner, unsure whether or not you should even call yourself a word artist, the Portals Conference has something for you,” said organizer and author Gina Ochsner. “These workshops are designed for artists of all levels, genres and interests. Like Corban University, the Portals Writers’ Conference is actively rooted in a Christian perspective, but its tone is informal, friendly and hospitable to those of all walks of faith.”
