When the conference is over, what will you do to continue writing and put into practice the lessons and insight gained during our short week together? This year, we’ve partnered with the Word Weavers International writing communities to provide you with a writing group in your area. Our primary goal is to provide encouragement, accountability, education, inspiration and support for current and aspiring Christian writers and speakers. Our secondary goal, as communicators are raised up and equipped, is to give testimony to our King and influence culture in the direction of Christ.
Currently Word Weavers is experiencing wonderful, fruit-filled growth. Jesus said that the Father’s will is that we bear fruit and that our fruit remains. Across the country, Word Weavers is providing the community that writers need to become and remain faithful to their gifts and calling.
If you live in West Michigan, click here to view their schedule, and connect with Word Weavers West Michigan. This group meets twice a month, every month, and we hope to add additional groups across the Midwest soon. We schedule experienced writers, editors and other professionals to attend some of these meetings, where they give a 30 to 45 minute seminar on their area of expertise. During the rest of our meetings, we gather in smaller groups. The small groups allow members to stay connected and improve writing and editing skills through personal critique sessions.
Word Weaver groups are available around the country, and if there isn’t one yet in your area, contact National Mentor Timothy Burns and ask about getting one started in your home town.
