We are meeting on Google Meets on the last Sunday of every month at 4:00 PM, Pacific Time. Our average attendance is 9-13 people. Email Julie for the link or if you are interested in being a guest speaker.
“Thank you for leading us. Motivation and confidence are big things for me right now. I love the group. Though I don’t know what God is leading me to write exactly, I believe that our writing group is here because God wants it to help us. We’ll all find our genre, passion, gift, goals, and inspiration together. God bless you and bless us all.” -Linda
We are writers who are Believers, and write for both the Christian and secular markets. Several of us are also members of Oregon Christian Writers and attend conferences at West Coast Christian Writers but this is not required to attend our writer’s group. Most all genres are represented.
- Critiquing of each other’s work. (Outside of group, mostly)
- Read-aloud time of our latest projects.
- Prayer and encouragement.
- The sharing of writing resources.
- Making a list of the questions we have and what we want to learn.
- Occasional guest speakers.
- Discussion of proper manuscript formatting, passive voice, switching point of views and much more.
Several members have shared that they have received new energy from joining the group and are excited to write more. One member went home after the first meeting and not only got to chapter 20 on a book he hadn’t worked on in a long time, but started a nonfiction one, as well!
We have room for more! Want to join us? You can email me if you would like more information.
I asked for prayer in writer’s group for my son and his insurance. God came through!!! He has been re-instated. Can’t tell you how relieved we all are! And daughter has an interview for a job, which we prayed about too! -Jan
