Faculty & Workshops
As the only annual conference for Christian editors, our faculty works hard to ensure every session speaks to our attendees’ specific needs. Whether you are an aspiring editor or a seasoned editor, you’ll find workshops that address relevant issues.
Our virtual conference offers opportunities to interact with faculty during workshops and one-on-one appointments. You will also be able to meet and converse with other attendees in our virtual fellowship meetings.
“I was also affirmed in my choice of retirement careers in that so many others shared my experiences and feelings.”
“In spite of being forced online, PENCON did not disappoint! Every presentation brought fresh wind to my sails and excitement about applying what I learned. I’ll go back and watch the recordings of the ones I missed. The conference staff handled the technology like champs. Thank you for providing this opportunity.”
“The 2020 PENCON may not have been traditional, but it was a joy to attend. I took away lots of nuggets to use in my editing business, and I’m already looking forward to next year’s conference.”
“Virtual PENCON was extremely well organized and facilitated, making for a smooth and pleasant attendee experience. The presenters were knowledgeable and engaging, and even as an experienced editor, I learned a lot. I appreciated the interspersing of prayer throughout the conference and how some editors see their editing work as a calling and even as worship. It was powerful to be among a group that shares not only a profession but also Christian faith.”
“PENCON is the only conference where the other attendees get me. It’s so refreshing to be among like-minded editors who do what they do because they see it as a calling and a gifting rather than a job. I continue to be impressed by the generosity of the presenters and attendees alike. So much sharing.”
“Oh my goodness, PENCON went way beyond meeting my expectations. I learned so much! I can’t wait for next year!”
“I am much more likely to attend a virtual conference in the future. It went so smoothly!”
