I know that one reason why I’m on this earth is to help people do what God has called them to do; I’ve found that encouraging others to use their gifts and talents is better than eating chocolate.
One venue where I’m able to encourage others is through Word Weavers International.
Word Weavers is a Christian based critique group that incorporates a special method of critique and provides scholarships for writing conferences as well as many other membership benefits.
There are now over thirty groups in America and Canada. I was a mentor on the national team for three years, and I coached the presidents of local Word Weaver chapters located throughout the country. I’m still on the national team, but now I coordinate/edit the blog for the Florida Christian Writers Conference, which is the Word Weaver Writers conference held every February- floridacwc.net.
If you feel God is calling you to write, and it is one of your passions, check out the Word Weavers website and see if there is a group in your area. If not, maybe you need to start one!
They’ve got some great mentors. 🙂
