PENCON for Editors

pencon logo
PENCON, the only annual editing conference for editors in the Christian market. It’s always the first week in May, but the location is different.

In addition to being a writer and editor, I’m the Assistant Director of PENCON, a division of Christian Editor Network LLC. PENCON is a professional editing conference that is designed to encourage and equip editors in cooperative competition through networking and also to provide continuing education for professional editors by seasoned editors.

May 3-5, 2018, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, join us to learn from industry professionals, network with fellow editors (from beginners to seasoned professionals), and meet with the faculty. Robert Hudson, author of The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style, will be our keynote speaker. We will also be touring Our Daily Bread on Thursday morning. It will be a tour you won’t want to miss! Contact us through PENCON’s website to join us at no extra cost. See you there!

We offer attendee scholarships, found on PENCON’s website. Register today.

I’m honored to join such an inclusive team. #amediting

For PENCON 2017, Cecil Murphey was our keynote speaker. Here’s his endorsement:

“I’ve taught in approximately 260 conferences during my career. PENCON 2017 ranks right at the top. The efficiency of Jenne Acevedo, Christi McGuire, and Kathy Ide, stand out. Not only efficient but they and their staff members such as Tisha Martin, were self-giving, never too busy to answer questions, and did everything they could to make us comfortable.

For anyone interested in editing—beginner or professional—PENCON does an excellent job in providing classes to educate and encourage.”

Cecil Murphey, author or ghostwriter of 140 including 90 Minutes in Heaven (Don Piper), Gifted Hands (Ben Carson), Rebel with a Cause (Franklin Graham). He has also written three books for writers, including Ghostwriting: The Murphey Method.
