A Christian Writer’s Conference that built my faith and affirmed my talent!

K. Van Dyke
Non-Fiction Writer

I came hoping for one nugget of insight and maybe a meaningful connection. My expectation was over matched within an hour of the start. All the rest was icing on a great cake!

Cheri Fields
Editor and Writer

I had no idea how thirsty I was until I came to The Well. Being with other creatives and worshipping and learning together.

Because of all that I have learned in classes, and one on one, God has made it clear as to the next steps I must take to fulfill his will for my life. It is also clear that I cannot do this alone. I need help. I need support. We all need each other. I learned all this at the well 2021. And to think what I almost missed! One little “yes” to God’s will has changed the direction of my life. Say “yes” to the Well! Drink in the hope it offers!

Thank you for quenching our thirst at the well. The well conference attracts all creatives. Writers, speakers, storytellers, artists, & film based on a strong faith-based foundation. Just like Jesus modeled acceptance, love and service is what the leaders modeled at the conference. Thank you so much.
