Keynote Speaker Robert Hudson

Author of The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style and editor at Zondervan

“I’ve taught in approximately 260 conferences during my career. PENCON 2017 ranks right at the top. The efficiency of Jenne Acevedo, Christi McGuire, and Kathy Ide stand out. Not only efficient but they and their staff members, such as Tisha Martin, 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.”
Cecil Murphey, author or ghostwriter of 140 books including Ghostwriting: The Murphey Method, 90 Minutes in Heaven (Don Piper), Gifted Hands (Ben Carson), and Rebel with a Cause (Franklin Graham).
