About the Conference
The Writers’ Vision Freedom Conference is a virtual writing conference whose profits will go to Operation Underground Railroad to help free victims of human trafficking.
The goal of this conference is to a.) help free victims of human trafficking and b.) to educate Christian Creatives about the power of stories and how they can use their stories to change the world!
All the Info!
January 20th, 2023 – 1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. EST (Registration closes on Jan. 16th.)
Online! (Google Meets, recordings will be available)
$20 base cost, but you can donate as much as you want!
Writers’ Vision was founded in 2021 as an online writing community, but as the community has grown, so have our goals. We strive to empower Christian creatives and show them how important their words and art have. Whether they are writers, bloggers, artists, or musicians, we want them to know just how powerful creatives can be.
This conference is a huge leap, but one we feel God is calling us toward. Through it, we hope to empower Christian creatives, primarily writers, to use the gifts God has given them to change the world! To empower them to use their creative skills for huge and glorious things in the name of our Father in Heaven. Creating is a beautiful experience in which we mimic the greatest creator of all time, and the responsibility of such an honor is great. Through the course of the conference, we want to educate Christian creatives on just how great that responsibility is and how they can forever impact the world around them.
All profits from the Writers’ Vision Freedom Conference will be donated to Operation Underground Railroad to help free victims of human trafficking.
Our goal is twofold. Educate creatives on just how much they can impact the future and use the funds to do something extraordinary right here, right now. Implementing what we will be teaching at the conference with the profits made by the conference.
Creating should never be just about money or popularity, but about how we can change the world for the better! How we can impact other people’s lives and spread the Light of our Holy Father! And that is exactly what we will be exploring at the Writers’ Vision Freedom Conference!
How Does the Price Work?
Because all proceeds are going to O.U.R. (Operation Underground Railroad), the base cost of the event is just $20 dollars! But if you’d like to give more to the cause you can.
Kaytlin Phillips is a homeschool grad who spends her days praising her Savior, reading, writing, blogging, and annoying her sisters with random thoughts. She is the fifth child out of seven and resides in the Southern Appalachian foothills of Western North Carolina.
She believes in the power of stories and their ability to change lives. And when not writing stories of hope, purpose, and redemption, you can find Kayti (as everyone calls her) reading, hiking, or taking random pictures.
Abigail G. Thompson
Abigail is the teen author behind The Whispers of the Wind and the poetry book Scrawled Out Timeline. Her mission is to write God-glorifying fiction that compellingly uplifts Biblical themes and promotes divine Truth through heart-pounding stories so lives can be transformed by the Gospel’s message of hope and inspiration.
When she isn’t writing the next epic fantasy book, you can find her reading her favorite books, hanging out with friends, being a gym rat, obsessively drawing, or serving her church.
Leialoha Humpherys, a multigenre author hailing from the Big Island of Hawaii, is making waves in the literary world. With her Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Hawaii at Hilo, she has published several books, including the self-help gem, Aloha State of Mind.
Leialoha’s enchanting fairy tale retellings, set in ancient Hawaii, have captivated readers with their resilient protagonists and hopeful endings. Known for her love of the ocean, Hawaiian culture, and all things coconut, Leialoha currently resides in Utah, with her husband and adorable baby girl.
Nadine Brandes once spent four days as a sea cook in the name of book research. She is the 4-time Carol Award-winning author of seven books including Wishtress, Romanov, and the Out of Time Series. She is passionate about Jesus, motherhood, and creating with the Creator.
When she’s not busy writing novels about bold living, she’s adventuring through Middle Earth or taste-testing a new chai with her Auror husband and their four Halfling children.
