Fellowship of Christian Writers began with a handful of writers in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area in 1979. We are men and women, sharing a love for Jesus and talents for verbal expression, joining together for encouragement, education, and fellowship. Our goal is to equip and encourage writers to follow their God-given dreams of putting 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. Our purpose is to provide mentoring and instruction; share skills; offer kindly criticism; supply information on markets, contests, and conferences; share prayer needs, and be inspired and encouraged by fellow writers. Our desire is that our written words always reflect Christ and glorify God.

“The Lord announced the word, and great was the company of those who proclaimed it.”

Psalm 68:11 

Coming up:
June Meeting

Speaker | Laurel Thomas

Join us June 13th when Oklahoma City writer and writing coach Laurel Thomas will be speaking to us on the topic of Storytelling in Every Genre. We will learn how to use effective storytelling to make our fiction and nonfiction sing. Laurel says, “It’s all how words convey our stories with clarity and beauty. Fictional techniques pull a reader into your manuscript and imprint the message on their hearts.” This will be another excellent program filled with helpful insight and instruction. Let’s not miss it!

Laurel Thomas crafts stories of ordinary characters who achieve the extraordinary. River’s Call is an award-winning historical novel based in the deep South. History and the fantastic mesh in her fantasy series, When Stars Brush Earth and Stones of Promise, published by Wild Rose Press.  

Through Write Your Heart Out! and WriterCon Oklahoma City, she teaches and supports other multi-published industry professionals who equip writers for success through national conferences and weekend intensives.
