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

Tara Lynn Thompson | The Rhythm Writing is Going To Get You

Join us for a sure to be fun, instructive, and inspiring evening with writer, speaker, and author Tara Lynn Thompson. Tara Lynn says, “Sound it off. Writing that enchants and captivates does so using one often unnoticed element: rhythm. When done right or used to delight, it’s the metronome under the prose. And it will get toes tapping.

Tara Lynn Thompson’s unconventional approach to writing combines the brilliance of simplicity and the delight of the unexpected. She is passionate about telling stories in a way that feels relatable, while satisfyingly unpredictable. Her words have been quoted in The Washington Times, Fox Business, AOL News, and others, while her distinctive advertising copy has been used in multi-million dollar fundraising campaigns, popular product packaging, entertaining speeches, and dynamic commercials, all of which have earned her numerous Addys and an Emmy. She also works as an adjunct writing professor, private teacher, frequent speaker, and is the author of The Another Series trilogy.

With more than 20 years of published writing, Tara Lynn has won numerous prestigious awards, which she hasn’t kept track of because “it isn’t even a little interesting,” she explains. With little prompting, however, she will tell you about that time Dean Koontz responded to her fan letter.

“Now that’s a great story.”
