Joyce K Ellis – Writing Personal Experience Pieces.

November 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Navigation

Your own experiences (or someone else’s) can encourage, motivate, and challenge readers. Many editors of books, articles, and devotionals are looking for personal experience manuscripts because “truth-enfleshed” writing often reaches readers better than the theoretical. In this practical session, we will help you identify stories that can benefit others and give you the tools to craft them into saleable books and articles.

Joyce K. Ellis is author or coauthor of more than a dozen books, including The 500 Hats of a Modern-Day Woman, updated and revised. She has also published hundreds of magazine articles, writes a grammar column for Christian Communicator magazine, served as a staff editor for two Christian magazines, and currently does editing for Prayer Connect magazine. She received a Gold Medallion Award for her children’s devotional book, The One-Minute Bible for Kids, and she has won numerous awards from the Evangelical Press Association for her articles. She mentors students of the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild correspondence course, has served as assistant director for the Write-to-Publish Conference in the Chicago area, and teaches at writers conferences and speaks for women’s groups and retreats across the country and internationally. She and Steve, her husband of 45 years, who live in suburban Minneapolis, love traveling, reading, and being involved in the lives of their five grandchildren.
