In the beginning was the Word...
Ancient texts provide fascinating insight into cultures and societies long since passed from the earth. And what we write today can provide this same window to readers of the future. Will our writing be of consequence? Will it stand the test of time as the great classics have?
Just ask God. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1 [NASB]) The Word which is God predates even Creation and stands unchanged for all eternity. Let our writing therefore be inspired by God's Word, flowing from our relationship with Him to proclaim eternal Truth for every generation.
We welcome you to join our enthusiastic group of developing writers as we hone our skills in our monthly teachings,
workshops 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.
