If you are a Christian author writing speculative fiction, find your people at Realm Makers.

This isn't your garden-variety writers conference.

Thomas Locke is an award-winning novelist with total world-wide sales of seven million copies. His work has been published in twenty languages, and critical acclaim includes four Christy Awards for excellence in fiction and his 2014 induction into the Christy Hall of Fame.

The 2016 conference will offer pre-conference content on Thursday, July 28th, and two full days of learning and action on Friday the 29th and Saturday the 30th. Come prepared to pack your days with more knowledge than you imagined could fit in a mere three days.


The 2016 Realm Makers conference will return to the lovely campus of Villanova University, with its fabulous facilities and award-winning dining program. There's no conference on a college campus you'll love more.

​​The 2016 faculty will boast some old friends as will as some new faces. From seasoned veterans of speculative fiction to fresh new voices, you won't want to miss a learning from a single member of this speculative fiction-focused crew!
