Organization for Writers

with Edie Melson

We all struggle for balance between time to write and time to do the business of writing. Instead of fighting, learn how to lean into God and let Him lead the way. Edie is the queen of balancing a busy life. She’s an author, conference director, blogger, speaker, social media coach, business owner and wife. She’ll tell you that sometimes she does better than others, but having a plan brings peace, no matter what. The ultimate to her secret to sanity and joy is letting God guide. In this workshop you’ll learn her tips and tricks to keeping track of multiple streams of income as well as projects. She’ll also share her bullet journal and show you how to keep up with everything in one place.

Edie Melson is a woman of faith with ink-stained fingers experiencing life through the lens of her camera. No matter whether she’s talking about writing, social media or faith, her first advice is always “Find your voice, live your story.” Her reputation as an online expert is well-deserved. Her blog reaches thousands and has been named a Writer’s Digest Top 101 Sites for Writers. She’s the director of the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, board member of the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association, and author of numerous books. She’s quick to remind those she meets about the practical and personal applications of God’s infinite love. Visit her online at
