James L. Rubart   This year, we welcome James L. Rubart, a multi-award-winning, best selling author who knows how easy it is for big dreams to get squashed by rejection; how destiny and purpose can fall flat when lies take their place. In this inspiring one-day conference, you’ll not only come away with tips and techniques for creating powerful stories, but you’ll gain insights that will help you triumph over life’s hurdles and disappointments so you can step fully into your greatest dream—as a writer who inspires others.

Jim says he is a 28 year-old trapped in an older man’s body. He thinks he’s still young enough to water ski like a madman and dirt bike with his grown sons. He loves to send readers on journeys they’ll remember long after they finish one of his stories, and he’s a popular speaker with a fun, interactive style you’ll enjoy. Winner of Christy, Carol, INSPY and RT Book Reviews awards, he is the author of nine novels and lives with his wife beside a small lake in eastern Washington.

Conference Sessions

Stepping Out of the Shadows- Turning your deepest dream into reality
We're all divinely designed for a specific destiny, but often we're held back by chains and wounds from which Jesus longs to free us. During this talk James tells his story, but more importantly shares the specific steps on how you can step fully into your greatest dream.

A Crash Course on Branding
What exactly is branding? How do you discover that yours is? And how do you apply it? During this short workshop, James will explore these questions and show you how to apply the answers to your writing career.

How to Apply the Five Most Powerful Methods of Story Creation to Your Novels
You'll learn how to break down, in detail, the five most powerful methods best-selling authors use to create their stories. Yes! There are time-tested formulas that always work!—as well as proven building blocks you must understand and learn to apply to your novels and when you're generating new ideas. Plus, you'll learn how you can harness the secrets of blockbuster movies and use these to develop stories that will draw the attention of editors, agents, and ultimately readers.

Death of the Dream- Finding triumph in what you thought was defeat
What happens when your greatest dream crashes and burns? When you've been taken out by people, circumstances, the weight of life. Where do you go next?
