Dual-Curriculum in Learning to Write for Children

by Darcy L. Hendrick

I am the mother of four grown sons. But they weren’t always grown. There were quite a few hectic years that could best be described as managed chaos. I would get a little one off my hip and onto his feet just in time to have another firmly attach himself. And honestly, who knew there were […]

What Spills Out of You?

by Ava Pennington

When you jostle a full glass of orange juice, what spills out? And what spills out of a full glass of milk? Silly questions? Maybe. Of course, orange juice will spill out of the first glass and milk will spill out of the second one. But perhaps not so silly when we apply this to […]

One-Day Writer’s Conference hosted by Lexington Word Weavers!

Lexington Word Weavers (LWW) is a local (Lexington, South Carolina) chapter of Word Weavers International, a Christian writers’ development and critique organization that offers the annual Florida Christian Writers Conference and helps members in various locales to set up their own local critique groups using the WW model and structure.

The LWW chapter, led by Jean Wilund, periodically offers one-day conferences or seminars on specific topics such as blogging and social media, fiction and nonfiction writing, editors’ tips, writing and submitting devotionals, and developing as a writer. Having attended a program offered in January of 2017, I can attest to the warm welcome this group provides as well as the attention to detail and professional quality of its programming.

The next planned conference will feature author Mike Dellosso as speaker, September 16, 2017, at:

Riverbend Community Church

1015 Corley Mill Rd
Lexington, SC 29072

Dellosso is known for his eight novels as well as nonfiction books and various magazine articles. While he describes himself modestly as “not a very interesting person,” his stories of suspense have won acclaim from fans and professional reviewers. He unashamedly identifies himself as a follower of Christ and work in progress. See more about Dellosso, including his blog on writing, faith, and being a cancer survivor, here.

Fresh Ideas to Reach Children and Teens

I remember words of advice from seasoned professionals in the writing industry. Don’t be in a hurry to hit ‘send’ as soon as you finish your manuscript. Put it away for some time. Then, revisit it and send the revised, polished work on to your agent or publisher. I was like many authors I know. […]

But Facebook is still a social media powerhouse for a reason: millions of people use it to establish community and connections. By following these six tips, […]
