Need a Speaker?

Do you need a speaker for your writing group, book club, or writing conference? Since 1993, Susan has been a speaker at writers conferences, teachers conventions, and other organizational gatherings such as Evangelical Press Association (EPA). Susan mentors writers and editors, leads a bi-monthly writers group, co-leads the regional EPA meetings, and has spoken internationally. Contact Susan if you need a speaker for your group, conference, or other event.

Susan is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), Christian Authors Network (CAN), the Association of Women Speakers & Authors (AWSA), and Evangelical Press Association (EPA). She has taught writing workshops for many writers conferences including Evangelical Press Association (EPA), Colorado Christian Writers Conference, Writing for the Soul Conference, Write-to-Publish Conference, Baptist Press Journalism Conference, and others. Below is a list of workshops Susan can teach:


Are you having a writers event? Susan is available to speak to your writers conference, writers retreat, or writers groups. Susan would be glad to do single workshops, multiple sessions, or a continuing education module.

Making Sense of it All. It’s easy to lose the beauty of the moment, an awareness of the senses, delight in the small things, and the sweet simplicity that can make your writing life, and your writing itself so full and vibrant. Come for a hands-on workshop to ignite your creativity in a whole new way, engage your senses, and be amazed how it’ll bring your writing alive!

Organize Your Writing Life. Organizing your writing project—and your writing life—can help you succeed as a writer. Whether your making a plan, scheduling your writing, finding the right tools to help you, or getting ready to write the next Great American Novel, organizing is key. This workshop will give you practical tools to do just that.

The Flip Side of a Writer. It’s important to understand the dual sides of a writer — the creative side and the analytic side. This workshop will help you hone your editing skills, work effectively with your editor, and develop your analytic side with ease.

Self-Editing Made Easy. For creative writers, editing your own work can be daunting. This session provides a step-by-step way to edit your own writing project.

Writing an Amazing Magazine Article. You’ve got a great idea. Here’s a step-by-step way to take your idea and make it an amazing article for publication.

Writing an Amazing Query Letter. Query letter? What’s that? Whether you are writing it for an article or for a book editor to read, come and find out how to create an amazing query letter that editors will stop and notice!

Writing From Your Sweet Spot. You desire to write, even feel called to write. So how do you creatively connect, nurture your vision, grow in your craft, persevere through the challenges, and find God’s plan for your writing life?

Words that Work. Like producing a symphony, creating a written work of art takes vision, hard work, skill—and teamwork. We’ll talk about how to hone your vision, work effectively, develop your skills, and work with your editor well.

Keeping the Focus. In today’s culture, unbiblical worldviews often creep into writing, even from seasoned professional writers. So what, exactly, is a worldview, and how does a writer convey a biblical worldview—without getting theological? Find out how to make sure your writing aligns with biblical truth so you really make a difference in the lives of your readers.

For Editors: The Ideal Editor. Come and learn some tried and true tips for editing a magazine or newsletter article to make it a memorable piece of written art. Topics will include: making effective assignments, respecting the author and keeping his or her voice, and employing the art of being an invisible editor.
