Oncourse is a teen oriented magazine produced and put out by the Assembly of God churches. I've been fortunate to have had the opportunity to write three magazine articles for them.
Oncourse started my writing career. I started attending writer's conferences when I was 15. The Florida Christian Writer's conference was the first I attended.
There I met Amber, Oncourse's head editor. She offered me and my friends (who had come to the conference as well) a writing opportunity, which we quickly accepted. None of us really knew much about article writing at the time, but I think we did okay anyway.
Amber was my first official editor and gave me two more magazine articles before I started writing novels. She helped me get my foot in the door and understand what it meant to write professionally!
I got to see her again at ICRS because she wanted to do an interview with me. It was great to see her again.
