Are you looking forward to new opportunities to learn and connect in 2021? I know we are. We’re excited to announce our teaching faculty for the upcoming Realm Makers Conference, slated to take place in St. Louis, MO, July 15-17, 2021.
Registration for the conference opens on February 1st, so don’t miss your chance to hear from the following amazing lineup.
Keynote speaker: Bestselling author Frank Peretti
We’ve been praying to have Frank with us, literally from Realm Makers inception in 2013, so you can imagine how thrilled we are to unlock the achievement of having him join us!
Continuing Session teachers:
Author, editor, and creative mastermind Allen Arnold
Allen will be teaching about the creative life and how it interweaves your Christian walk in nearly six hours of content that are bound to inspire.
Bestselling author and educator David Farland
David returns to Realm Makers to teach a practical track on Promising Starts, Magnificent Middles, and Powerful Endings—make that book of yours shine from the first page to the last.
Branding and Marketing guru Thomas Umstattd Jr.
Thomas will be unpacking his expertise to help you not just write books, but sell them. If you’re familiar with his Christian Publishing Show, you know his strategies are based in copious research and trend-tracking, so the value of his continuing session cannot be overstated.
Our elective teacher lineup includes:
- Award-winning authors Nadine Brandes and Sharon Hinck
- FightWrite combat expert Carla Hoch
- Creative legal expert Judith Anderle
- Agent and editor Steve Laube
- Editor for Shadow Mountain Books Heidi Taylor Gorton
Our preconference workshop will be taught by bestselling author and mastermind of LMBPN publishing Michael Anderle, who will deliver nearly six hours of power-packed strategies for authors who are interested in self-publishing.
Our list of agents and editors who will be joining us to listen to your manuscript pitches in one-on-one appointments is still developing, but we vow to bring you many promising options if you’re looking for a publishing home for your manuscript. Organizations that will be represented include houses like Tyndale Publishing, The Steve Laube Agency, Enclave Publishing, and more. Keep an eye on our social media for updates.
See you in St. Louis!
