Writing, Publishing, and Praying: Resources from My TGCW16 Sessions

I had the privilege of leading (or co-leading) several sessions at TGCW16 this week. I'm thankful for each of my sisters who attended those sessions, and--as promised--I'm posting links here to the resources I mentioned in my presentations. If you have follow-up questions or comments, you can always email me: megan@sundaywomen.com

Marilynne Robinson said, "I hope I never condescend to the audience. I think you should write as if people who are smarter than you are will read it." That quote comes from this article:
Marilynne Robinson: the Pulitzer Prize winning author on her new book
