Caribbean Christian Writers Conference Cruise

Our conference year wraps up each November with an annual, seven-day writer's cruise in the beautiful Caribbean. A writers conference is held on board the luxury liner, but scheduled so as not to conflict with other exciting shipboard activities and never during the times we are docked at one of the exotic islands. A highlight is the hour spent together each evening in fellowship and sharing at our "afterglow" session.
