If enough people are interested in a particular attraction, we will organize a group outing, led by a SoCal native. In some cases, we might be able to get discounted tickets. This is an amazing opportunity to hang out and have fun with fellow authors and faculty members in a casual, friendly, no-pressure environment. And probably make some lifelong friendships.

  • Disneyland
  • Universal Studios
  • Hollywood
  • Huntington Gardens and Library
  • Griffith Observatory
  • LA or San Diego Zoo
  • Sea World
  • Catalina Island
  • Whale watching
  • Or some of SoCal’s gorgeous beaches

We also offer a special track just for teens!

*Come back and check the website often, as we will be adding more faculty and workshops soon!*

Conferees are invited to consider staying in beautiful Southern California for a day or two (or more) after the conference to enjoy some of the famous tourist attractions in the area. While you’re in the area, why not check out:

Have you been wanting to take your family to Southern California for a vacation? This is the perfect opportunity. They can check out some attractions (or relax on the beach or at the hotel pool) while you’re at the conference, then you can all tour SoCal together afterward.

And you’ll be able to count your airfare and your transportation costs during the conference as tax deductions! (Verify that with your accountant first.)

We’re looking forward to having you join us at the very First Annual SoCal Christian Writers’ Conference!
