No matter where you are in your career, starting out or branching out, published or not, we can encourage and equip you to get to the next level; to see a "greater harvest" in your own life and in the lives of those you touch.
Each Greater Harvest Workshop Event includes classes taught by Linore Rose Burkard and Donna J. Shepherd, the team behind GHW. We also carefully select other multi-published and award-winning writers and speakers to bring even more value to our attendees.

What does your platform, your online web presence--or worse, your
lack of one--tell an agent or editor about you? Does it shout out that
you're an amateur or impress with your professionalism? Does it suggest
you're just dabbling in writing, or tell the world you mean business? In
this class, Linore will share her top ten secrets to establishing an
online platform that will reassure an agent or editor you are a serious
writer. Don't let a first impression ruin your chances of getting that
elusive book contract. Let Linore show you how to come across like a
pro.You Can Write a Novel. - Teresa Slack
Writing a novel can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn't have
to be. In this workshop, Teresa will show you how to access the skills
and material you already possess to turn your story idea into a finished
novel. 10:45 -11:45: Workshop 2 ABC's of Writing for Children - Donna J. Shepherd
Who wants to write--or read--ho-hum stories? Children are bored with flat, preachy
writing. Children's author Donna Shepherd will share twenty-six ways she
keeps her writing lively, and give tips for making your writing sparkle with
energy and appeal to both children and
grownups. Common "Righting Miss Steaks" - Wayne Holmes
This class will examine some of the most common mistakes we make as
writers (and not just spelling!). Wayne will help his students learn to improve their writing by
making simple changes in such areas as passive construction, formatting
issues, POV errors, and--time permitting--up to seventeen other issues.12:00 -1:00: Workshop 3 Building Believable Characters - Linore Rose Burkard
Have you struggled to write characters with depth, realism, and
individuality? In this class, Linore will share her techniques for
bringing life into characters, with an emphasis on writing the Christian
character. Many writers end up with a preachy or cardboard protagonist
in their books when they really want a breathing, vital Christian who
can share his or her faith without turning off the reader. Linore will
share the ways you can avoid preaching while still fulfilling the call
to share the gospel.The Proposal-Driven Life - Bob Hostetler
It's not enough to write a great book. These days, it is also
crucial to write a "killer" proposal. Learn from actual proposals and
the easily applied techniques of Bob Hostetler, an award-winning author
of 26 books.
