The best investment is a good investment, but what is a good investment? One that has lasting personal and professional value. As editors, we value the authors and publishers and clients we work with—and we value our editing skills.

At PENCON 2018, we guarantee you lasting personal and professional value. Value in friendships. Value in a community that thinks—and speaks—just like you. Value in professional networking. Value in continuing education. Value in stretching your business—and yourself—as you meet new professionals in your field of expertise and learn from their experiences.

How much value do you want?

We’re celebrating our fifth anniversary and meeting in the heart of Grand Rapids, Michigan, May 3–5, 2018. Collectively, our faculty comes prepared with more than 100 years of experience in the publishing industry and backgrounds in

  • indie publishing,
  • marketing,
  • business,
  • children’s and YA editing,
  • graphic design,
  • project management,
  • fiction,
  • nonfiction,
  • proofreading,
  • journalism, and
  • education.

Our faculty also represents several Christian publishing houses, including Baker Books, Revell Nonfiction, Kregel Publications, Zondervan, and HarperCollins Christian. And our keynote speaker is Robert Hudson, the author of The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style.
