oregonchristianlogoTwo Washington State leaders in publishing head to Oregon in June to share wisdom and encouragement with writers at the Cascade Christian Writers Conference June 25 through 28 at the Canby Grove Christian Center.

Do you enjoy listening to audiobooks? Would you like to learn how to create your own? Christy Hall of Fame author James L. Rubart of Manson, Wash., whose 16 novels have won Carol, INSPY, and Romantic Times Book Reviews awards, will teach a three-day, intensive coaching class on “Recording Your Own Audiobooks.” The longtime marketer and branding expert and audio book narrator will mentor authors at the conference.

The Sunday through Wednesday conference features six in-depth morning coaching classes on the business of publishing; deep point-of-view; the differences between self-publishing, indie publishing, and traditional publishing; recording your own audiobooks; starting a podcast; and creating unforgettable memoirs.

“I owe a great deal of my writing career to the connections I’ve made at writing conferences,” said Christina Suzann Nelson, an award-winning author of six novels and coordinator of the conference. “I met my first agent at the Oregon Christian Writers Summer Conference. The friendships have been an added blessing.”

Ghostwriter Josh Kelley of Mount Vernon, a former pastor of 14 years and nonfiction author with Harvest House, will teach two workshops at the conference: “Public Speaking for Writers” and “From Novelist to Full-Time Ghostwriter.” With more than a dozen books written, he will mentor writers in one-on-one meetings.
