Encouraging Writers For Over 36 Years!
Fellowship of Christian Writers started with a handful of writers in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area in 1977. Originally called Tulsa Christian Writers Club, we changed our name to Fellowship of Christian Writers (FCW) in 1999 to reflect our growing influence outside of this geographic region. Thanks to the Internet and our Yahoo chat group, FCW has touched hundreds of writers and probably thousands of readers because of those writers' words.
Our goal is to equip and encourage writers to follow their God-given dreams of setting words to paper. Whether writing for the religious or secular market; writing articles or novels; or writing news, features, devotionals, poetry, scripts, and essays, writers have a special calling to deliver well-crafted words to their readers.
Over the years, we have had several satellite groups around the nation and welcome the opportunity to expand our mission to writers around the globe. We currently have one satellite group located in Vinita, Ok.
With nearly 60 local and at-large members and over 800 writers involved in our Yahoo group, (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/fcw) we are following God's call to help writers use their God-given talents.
We are now in Facebook with four groups. The first is for FCW paid members:
The Social Group is for all members: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fcwmembers/
The FCW group for all writers is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fcwforall/
And last but not least, the FCW members support group, for prayer and encouragement: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fcwsupport/
No matter who we are or what we do, if Jesus lives in our hearts and is Lord of our lives, we introduce Him into every encounter, every word, and every project. Whether 14, 49, or 94, FCW members write words that touch this world for good and to the glory of God.
The Lord announced the word, and great was the company
of those who proclaimed it. Psalm 68:11 (NIV)
Men and women, sharing a love for Jesus and talents for verbal expression, joining together for encouragement, education and fellowship.
The purpose of Fellowship of Christian Writers is to provide mentoring and instruction; share skills; offer kindly criticism; supply information on markets, contests, conferences and other areas of interest to Christians who write; share prayer needs; and to be inspired and encouraged by fellow writers. Our desire is that our written words always reflect Christ and glorify God.
