The Christian Writers’ Conference is on again this year!
However, it has now come under the banner of Omega Writers and has been renamed the ‘Omega Writers’ Conference’.
We would love every single one of you to come. There will be something for everyone, for all genres, from beginner writers to multi-published authors.
Arrive: Friday 28th October at 3.00pm
Leave: Sunday 30th October at 1.30pm.
There is also the option of coming for certain sessions/days rather than the whole weekend.
|Conference Centre at Mulgoa|
To be specific: At the Edmund Rice Retreat and Conference Centre, 1315 Mulgoa Road, Mulgoa.
Transport Options: To make it easy for you to get there we will have a conference shuttle bus running to and from the airport. If you are a planner and want to book your flight, the bus will leave the Sydney airport on Friday at 1.30pm and arrive at the conference centre around 3.00pm (depending on traffic). On the return journey it will leave the conference centre at 1.30pm Sunday to head back to the airport. Once again, traffic can be unpredictable, but the journey usually takes around an hour and a half.

Fellowship – meet other writers, encourage one another, share stories, network, pray for one another.
Workshops - We have had 75 workshop proposals to choose from and will carefully select 25 of these from quality presenters who have valuable experience and expertise to share with us.

Bootcamp – What is this?
This is an opportunity to come aside into one of the comfortable lounge rooms and put all you’ve learned into practice. Bring along your work in progress and enjoy some creative time writing. A variety of mentors and editors will be available throughout the day to provide assistance if required. Available all day Saturday, you can choose to join Bootcamp rather than attend a workshop/s.
Editor/Publisher/Consultant appointments – We have a variety of professional consultants available throughout the weekend. You can book appointments to speak with them one on one, receive advice and show them your work.
Worship – Sunday morning we will share in a special worship service together; a time of singing, sharing communion and listening to a message.
Bookshop - We have a well-stocked bookshop selling books by Aussie Christian authors. There will be opportunity to sell your own work through this book shop.
Inspiration – It only takes a spark to get a fire going, and when a group of God-inspired writers come together, we can feed off each other’s flame and go home on fire and ablaze with ideas, passion and direction.
