Alex Marestaing,  From a Whisper to a Shout: Alex got his start with Disney, and from there went on to write beautiful, soul-healing, YA.

In a world growing darker by the day, God is calling a new generation of writers and artists to share His hope in unique ways. With young adults leaving the church at an alarming rate, the time has come to rethink the way we engage with the culture and find our relevance once more. Based on Matthew 10:27, where God tells us to “shout from the rooftops” what He has “whispered in our ears,” Alex Marestaing encourages writers to face their insecurities and move forward in the creative direction they feel God is leading. In the past few months, Alex has had conversations with various Christian artists working in the mainstream creative market. With inspiring stories of artists making an impact in secular film, music, and publishing, Alex hopes to help those who wish to make a difference in the world develop a “voice” that will resonate in the church and beyond.

Jennifer Dornbush, Forensics  expert and screenplay writer, grew up with a forensics background. Her father, a mortician, told her that dead men do, indeed, tell tales. She took this to heart, and kept up the study of death, but developed a great sense of perspective, and with it, sense of humor.  She is a delightful speaker and gifted teacher. Jennifer plans to teach a March 3rd screenwriting class, as well, something she's been doing for Hollywood for years.

Peter Leavell, funny and poignant speaker, closes the writing year with his gently dynamic gift. Peter writes with a historic bent and loves odd facts. His most recent work is speculative, but Peter is also an established non-fiction writer capable of pulling emotion from a Lima bean. Come and be blessed!
