ACFW’s Storyfest welcomes Christian fiction readers to gather/meet authors

Palm Bay, FL: Created with Christian Fiction Reader-Fans in mind, the 2022 ACFW Storyfest is ACFW’s response to reader requests for access to some of their favorite authors and the chance to talk story. This inaugural year of hosting ACFW Storyfest (formerly the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat) takes place Thursday afternoon, September 8, 2022 through Saturday, September 10, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency at the Arch in St. Louis, Missouri.

The reader event—conducted in conjunction with ACFW’s annual conference for authors—includes a Meet & Greet with Christian Fiction authors on Thursday evening; all-day Friday and Saturday sessions including free books, free swag, interactive games and fun with authors; informative panels; afternoon tea; and more. Friday dinner and Saturday breakfast, with author-hosted tables, are included, as well as the opportunity to join a multitude of authors to hear an address by Liz Curtis Higgs, the conference’s keynote speaker.

Readers may also purchase an add-on Gala ticket which will allow them exclusive access to ACFW’s annual conference Awards Gala, celebrating the best in Christian Fiction through ACFW’s Carol Awards (published in the previous calendar year), Genesis Awards (as yet unpublished, writers to watch for), and other honors.

Christian Fiction readers are invited to celebrate story and some of their favorite authors right on the premises of the ACFW conference—where hundreds of CF authors gather each year. Books will also be available for purchase and signing onsite.
