About

Breathe Christian Writers Conference is for writers by writers who care about words and relationships. We love to connect writers with vital tools for their craft, but also with fellow writers. After all, God never intended us to travel alone.

Thirty-six workshops offer beginners and more advanced writers a variety of choices that range from tools for writing a novel to beginning a writing career; from boosting creativity to finding an agent; from writing devotionals to writing science fiction. We offer workshops in genres including fiction, nonfiction, memoir, young adult, poetry, blogging and more.

Workshop presenters include editors, agents, college professors, freelancers and book authors. All are engaged in the craft of writing in one way or another.

Breathe begins at noon on Friday and ends at 5 p.m. Saturday (check schedule for official times). We meet at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We offer Friday evening and Saturday noon meals, snacks and coffee, along with a healthy dose of conversation, personal contact with writers and workshop presenters, and a loving nudge to get you to the next step of your writing career. Our book table is run by the staff of Baker Book House.

We invite you to join us at this year’s Breathe Christian Writers Conference, read blog posts, and take a new step in your writing life.
