Helping and encouraging writers and aspiring writers
who want to share the love of Jesus Christ
through publication of their works in both religious and secular markets.
Let your words go to the ends of the world!
"A lamp is not brought to be put under a basket, is it, or under a bed?" (Mark 4:21 [NASB]) And a prophet is not sent to speak to an empty room, is he? Neither are we called to write to the dust bunnies in our closets. God's Word burns with an eternal flame where it has been written within our hearts. Now is the hour to fan the flame and carry His Word to the nations. Actively pursue publication, for it will not seek you!
We welcome you to join our enthusiastic group of developing writers as we hone our skills in our monthly teachings, read-arounds or critique sessions. And remember: help us help you by participating in our many hands-on activities throughout the year!
