Do you know a young, aspiring writer? Then that person needs to attend DevoFest!
I’ve known the founders of Christian Devotions Ministries and DevoKids for several years now, and this is an outstanding opportunity for young writers!
From their website:
Kids! Ignite your creative spirit with DevoFest! This powerful three-day conference (June 17,18,19, 2011 ) will encourage youth ages 7-17 to discover and develop their interest and talents in film, print and public speaking.
As part of the DevoFest writers’ contest, one lucky youth will receive a book contract!
Beginning Friday afternoon, teens, tweens, middle-graders and younger will mingle with and learn from professional actors and best-selling authors in an intimate classroom setting.
Workshops include: novel writing, graphic-novel creation, acting, film production, script-writing, story telling, the production of musical videos, creative cooking, drama, science exploration, and suspense-filled adventure walks where youth will explore the scary and fun facts about nature. (Bring your bear whistle!)
Held on the grounds of the LifeWay Ridgecrest Conference Center in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this sprawling 1,300 acre campus offers hiking trails, scenic brooks and nature walks.
DevoFest has a program fee of only $85 per student, which includes all sessions and breaks. A meal package is also available for on-campus dining covering all meals from Friday evening, through Sunday lunch. Convenient, on-campus lodging is available at Ridgecrest. Deluxe Room Rate: $90 per night, per room and kids stay free when accompanied by an adult.
Part of the Christian Devotions Ministries, this event will take place in Ridgecrest, NC. (Just outside of Asheville.)
