We equip and encourage Christian editors in cooperative competition through networking
The only annual conference for Christian editors
PENCON, a division of Christian Editor Network, is the only conference for editors in the Christian market. We specialize in editing and proofreading for CBA authors, agents, and publishers.
Our annual conference is typically held in the beginning of May. We choose a different city each year to move around the country and make it more affordable for attendees in various locations to join us. This year, PENCON will be virtual and offer 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.
There are many Christian writers’ conferences, but we are intentionally different than those. We choose our faculty in order to bring the best session topics and discussions that are specifically designed for editors. Many of our attendees are beginning or established freelance editors for private clients; however, we encourage all editors to attend. In-house editors, early readers, and freelancers for publishing houses will greatly benefit from our network of editors and the education we offer.
Join us at PENCON to learn how to begin your new editing business, see if editing is the right choice for you, brush up on your editing skills, or network with other highly-qualified professionals in the industry. We look forward to meeting you.
