Start A TDP Christian Writers' Group Chapter!




No matter how you slice it, a writer NEEDS to be in communiy with other writers in order to grow. Classes, conferences, hours of labor aside, we believe writers' groups offer the single best place for a writer (no matter his or her experience) to hone the craft, learn from the experiences of others, hear about exciting writing opportunities, find motivation for one's own projects, and share one's failures and successes. Bottom line, writing is best when it's not a lone wolf exercise!


So, if you're a writer (or want to be!), the first thing you need to do is get into a good writers' group! Can't seem to find one? No problem! Start one! We'll help!


First Step:
