Greater Philly Conference Scholarships

Dear Christian writers' group leader -

"Encourage each other to build each other up" 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (TLB) says.

I am convinced that encouragement is one of the most precious (and needed) gifts we can give each other. I seriously doubt I would have over 1,000 sales to Christian periodicals and eight published books without the encouragement I've received through the years from so many.

I want to keep passing that gift of encouragement on.

Thanks to gifts from several special friends I am able to offer three FULL scholarships to the August 10-12 Greater Philly Christian Writers Conference. Each scholarship will cover the $285 registration fee and the $49 meal package for 7 meals at the conference. Travel and lodging are not included. (For complete conference info and to view our 8-page brochure visit http://www.writehisanswer.com/Philadelphia.)

Is there someone in your writer's group you feel God wants you to encourage through your personal recommendation that he or she be given a scholarship? As you pray about this, please consider the following:

- Is he committed to the Lord Jesus Christ and eager to serve the Lord through writing?

- Is he committed to becoming a craftsman of excellence?

- Is he an active member of your group?

- Do you believe his writing has the potential to impact many lives but that he is in need of the encouragement the conference will offer?

In 250 words or less tell us who you are recommending and why, based on the above criteria. Please include his contact info: USPS address, email address, and phone number. Your recommendation needs to be received via email no later than July 12. Before submitting your recommendation, please check with the individual to make certain he would be able to come.

On July 13 we will notify you and the person you recommended whether or not he has been chosen to receive a scholarship. Seven runners-up will receive a free copy of my book Write His Answer - A Bible Study for Christian Writers.

Father, I trust that You have already chosen the writers You want to encourage through these scholarships and through Write His Answer. Thank You in advance for what You're going to do in their lives. And thank You, Father, for the faithfulness of these group leaders. Bless them in special and unexpected ways.

In Christ - Marlene
