CANBY - Jill Williamson of John Day will present a workshop at the Oregon Christian Writers 19th annual summer coaching conference July 28-31 at the Canby Grove Conference Center in Canby.

Williamson, senior editor of the Young Adult for Wild Rose Press, will be speaking on writing for teens.

This year, the conference will feature two celebrated authors as keynote speakers: Stephen Bly and Melody Carlson.

Each morning of the conference will be dedicated to coaching classes where writers can learn from nationally recognized authors, agents and editors. The conference also offers writers the opportunity to meet individually with agents and editors, submit manuscripts for critique, network with others in the Christian publishing market, and receive specialized instruction in a variety of genres, including fiction and nonfiction, magazine articles, devotionals, poetry, writing for children, and speculative fiction.
