About

She Speaks Conference

History

Proverbs 31 Ministries is a non-denominational, non-profit Christian ministry that seeks to lead women into a personal relationship with Christ.

With Proverbs 31:10-31 as a guide, Proverbs 31 Ministries reaches women in the middle of their busy days through free devotions, our mobile app, daily radio messages, speaking events, conferences, resources, Online Bible Studies, and training in the call to write, speak and lead others.

We are real women offering real-life solutions to those striving to maintain life’s balance, in spite of today’s hectic pace and cultural pull away from godly principles. Wherever a woman may be on her spiritual journey, Proverbs 31 Ministries exists to be a trusted friend who understands the challenges she faces and encourages her as she walks towards the heart of God.

She Speaks Conference

She Speaks is an annual conference put on by Proverbs 31 Ministries that trains women to write, speak and lead. This two-day conference (along with the optional pre-conference day) from July 26-28, 2018, encourages and equips women as they learn specific, fresh techniques to enhance their ability to communicate God’s Word through writing, speaking or leadership skills. Women can attend workshops taught by industry professionals, network with 700+ attendees, meet with publishers to pitch a book idea and hear inspiring messages from keynote speakers.

Why Attend?

Attending She Speaks Conference is beneficial because you will have the option to build your own schedule by selecting workshops related to writing, speaking or leading. Each attendee will personalize their schedule and will have the option to meet with a publisher. You’ll leave with a solid grasp of your chosen subjects and a wealth of ideas and content to continue working through once you return home.

Publisher Appointments

At She Speaks, we bring in agents and acquisition editors from major publishing companies to teach breakout sessions and to meet with attendees one-on-one. These individual appointments are limited and require some additional preparation. The purpose of meeting with a publisher is to pitch a book idea with a formal book proposal and/or one-sheet. We ask that you please be fully prepared for these meetings.

 

ATTENDING PUBLISHERS AND LITERARY AGENTS

Pre-Conference Webinars

If you are a first-time attendee and looking to pitch your book idea to a publisher or agent, we recommend signing up for our pre-conference training series led by Glynnis Whitwer and Karen Ehman.

We offer thorough training on how to prepare for the conference, get ready for a publisher appointment and write a book proposal. Both Glynnis and Karen will stay on the webinar to answer your questions (although we can’t provide specific advice on your book idea).

If you can’t make the live webinar, we will send you a recording including the extensive Q&A. You can read more and purchase access to the calls through our bookstore by clicking here.
