Christian Editors’ Conference

We equip and encourage Christian editors in cooperative competition through networking.

  • Would you like to brush up on your editing skills or learn something new?
  • Are you wondering if editing is right for you?
  • Are you an established editor looking for some face-to-face connections?
  • Are you an in-house editor seeking an editing community or continuing education?

Join us to learn from industry professionals, network with fellow editors (from beginners to seasoned professionals), and meet with the faculty.

PENCON is a division of Christian Editor Network LLC.

“Right at the Top”

“I’ve taught in approximately 260 conferences during
my career. PENCON ranks right at the top. The efficiency of Kathy Ide and her staff members stands out. Not only efficient but they and their staff members were self-giving, never too busy to answer questions, and did everything they could to make us comfortable. For anyone interested in editing—beginner or professional—PENCON does an excellent job in providing classes to educate and encourage.”
