Central Houston IWA!
2018 Event Calendar
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!

If you are interested in speaking at a Central Houston IWA! meeting, please click on the Speaker Registration link above and follow the directions on the form.
If you have any questions concerning the information on this site, or you would like more information, please fill out the Request Information form above and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
