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
