Keynote Speaker


Embracing the D.A.S.H. In Your Story

When God calls us to share our story with the world we often think it’s going to be immediate. We envision book deals, speaking engagements, and an exciting adventure with Him. In our enthusiasm we may omit obstacles, delays and pain.  In this keynote Kia will share her 26 year journey with the audience in order to help them embrace the D.A.S.H. between their story and God’s glory.

Breakout Session


Act Like a Writer, Think Like a Business

Many writers dream of earning a great income solely as a professional writer.  Let’s face it, the reality is, many writers don’t make a lot of money doing their craft. If a writer is going to make writing a profession instead of a hobby he/she will need to create multiple streams of income, but how?  In this workshop Kia will tackle business basics she began to implement in order to generate additional streams of income that any writer can follow.
