The Word Made Flesh - An event for writers

"The Word Made Flesh" is the theme for a day of encouragement for writers who are Catholic, whether they write within Catholic media or beyond. It is also the launching of the Long Island (NY) chapter of the Catholic Writers Guild.  Mark your calendar for this June 19th event.

The Long Island Catholic says:

Lisa Mladinich, founder of Catholic Writers of Long Island and organizer of the event hopes the day will bring together a wide spectrum of people interested in writing from a Catholic perspective.
“We really want it to be open,” she said. “It is for anybody interested in Catholic writing, from high school and college students, creative writers, journalists, novelists, bloggers, the mom writing poetry at her kitchen table, the volunteer who writes the parish bulletin, the catechist who uses the written word.”
Writing is usually a solitary pursuit, she explained. “It’s a lot more fun, a lot more productive, when you are hooked into a writing community that can provide encouragement and feedback.” The event will also serve as a fundraiser for Catholic Relief Services by raffling off Catholic books, theater tickets and other prizes. The conference is called “The Word Made Flesh,” emphasizing the connection of Catholics in the Body of Christ.
The keynote speaker, Rick Hinshaw, editor of The Long Island Catholic, will receive the Catholic Writers’ Guild’s “Lily” award for Meritorious Achievement in Catholic Arts and Letters. The Catholic Writers’ Guild is a professional group of writers, artists, editors, and illustrators, whose mission is to help build a vibrant Catholic literary culture. 

Yours truly gets to give a little talk about getting starting with new media.

The date for this event is June 19, and it will be held at Immaculate Conception Seminary in Huntington, NY.
