The Faithful Writer

The Faithful Writer conference (2 August 2008)
I've been to the Faithful Writer conference today. It wasn't exactly what I expected it to be, especially when I learned that the main speaker (Mark Tredinnick) was not a Christian, while I was under the impression that this was definitely a Christian gathering. Maybe I was wrong.
However, overall, I think it was a worth-while experience for me and I can say that I learned a few things through the conference, although I will not write much about them today - I'm simply way too tired for it.
Will I attend next time, if there was one? Maybe. While Mark did his good job, and I'm sure he is an expert in what he is doing, it simply was a matter of the mismatched expectation on my behalf. Hence, I think I'll do a bit more research on the main speaker before I register.

I went to The FW conference last year and yes, it's geared for a Christian audience. Tredinnik's written a great book about writing but over TFW is geared towards encouraging Christian writers in their craft and using their writing to honour God.
