What those in attendance have said
"My mentor helped me greatly at the ACW writers' retreat in Nashville and went over my manuscript with an eagle's eye. Subsequently, my book Light in the Night was published and is now on sale nationwide." Rev. Lud Golz, Ohio
"The ACW writers' retreat was a great time of fellowship and learning. Within a year after the retreat, my book, Keeping His Pants On . . . Until He Gets Home was published by ACW Press and I starting appearing on TV talk shows in several major cities. I now speak at women's retreats and conferences across the country." Joyce Oglesby, Indiana
The friends I made at the ACW writers' retreat have stayed close to me ever since, and we've encouraged each other in our writing careers. It's a marvelous experience of learning, sharing, growing, and maturing as writers." Betsy Kalman, South Carolina
