Let God's Word bring life to your pages!
In the words of Jesus: "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life." (John 6:63 [NASB])  Do you dream of writing a best-seller, whether non-fiction or fiction, that touches, heals and transforms lives through the generations?  Then you must draw from the wells of life that God has given you in the Bible, in your heart and in every word of your testimony.  Dig deep into your heart and allow Holy Spirit to shape your message on the page!

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.  Success is the direct result of our commitment to God's vision for our lives.  We are here to give you the tools you need to walk out God's Plan for your writing.  And we hope that you will take advantage of what we have to offer by actively participating and putting these tools to use.
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.
