2022 West Coast Christian Writers Online Conference

February 17 – 19, 2022


Into His Light

The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine.

Isaiah 9: 2 NLT

The 2022 WCCW Conference

Plot Twist

You know how sometimes when you sit down to write, you think the story will go one way but the plot twists and catches you by surprise?

Well, the WCCW Conference experienced a plot twist.

Though we’ve eagerly anticipated the opportunity to gather in person, the public health situation has complicated our storyline. Rising COVID activity could risk the health of attendees and faculty, especially those with weaker immune systems. Increasing travel difficulties and canceled flights could affect meeting together. And local regulations, which are among the strictest in the nation, would take some of the fun out of meeting in person. The county requires masking at all times in indoor public settings, and to dine in a restaurant requires proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test. 

In light of all this, we’ve made the decision to convert to an online conference. We know you share our disappointment in not being able to meet in person, but we also know you share our concern for the health and well-being of both faculty and attendees.

So we’re leaning into the plot twist. We’re redirecting our energy toward a dynamic online event that includes live keynote and online sessions, in addition to recorded content.

It’s going to be a page-turner!
