jot generic

If you’ve been following me long enough you know about the Jot Conference, even if you don’t live in the US or Michigan. It’s a one day free conference that celebrates the love of writing. It’s a place of encouragement and growth and connection.

This next Jot will be considerably smaller than the previous conferences because of the venue. But that does not mean it will be any less impactful to your writing career.

This Jot will be intimate and accessible. You’ll be able to interact with the presenters and encourage each other by sharing the mutual joy we have.

I hope you come with questions and are prepared to share during the breaks and after the presentations.

Great life happens in community.

I hope to see you there.

Introducing Lowry’s Books – The Location of the Next Jot Conference

Last week we announced that the fall edition of the Jot Conference is headed south to Three Rivers, MI and will be held at Lowry’s Books and More. Today we’d like to introduce you to this beautiful place.

Lowry’s is located in downtown Three Rivers, Michigan.

In addition to books, they sell all sorts of fun games, educational toys, and items for the hobby enthusiast.


Strapped for cash? You can still have books! There are free books out front. I’ve found anything from Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe to W. Somerset Maugham’s Of Human Bondage. So if money’s tight, simply use it on gas to get there.
