If you live in the Midwest and are looking for something to do this weekend, here's a conference that might interest you. It's the 2010 Annual Called to Write Conference sponsored by the Christian Writers Fellowship.

The conference will be April 9 & 10 at the Lamplighter Inn and Suites, 2040 Parkview Drive in Pittsburg, Kansas. Speakers include:

Deborah Vogts has written a contemporary romance series set in the Flint Hills of Kansas.

The workshop schedule covers: How to get started, How to promote yourself, Contracts, Poetry, Biographies and Memoirs, the Business of Writing, Background and Settings, and other topics.

I'm not sure if you can register this late, but it's worth checking out. For more information, including area lodging and dining options, contact Carol Russell or visit
