We Have an Announcement …
Write2Ignite: Christian Writers of Children’s and Young Adult’s Literature is now 12 years old! We’re moving forward in our journey to help Christian writers succeed. Sometimes that journey means changing direction, so we have a big announcement to make …
The Write2Ignite (W2I) Planning Team believes that God’s direction for W2I in 2020 involves making some changes in methods and programs. We believe these changes will enable W2I to continue providing Christian writers of children’s and young adult literature with the following:
Our focus is still on those who write for youth.
Our foundation is still Christ.
Our new format provides one-day Master Class workshops designed to help writers build specific skills. If taking your writing to higher levels is your goal, you will benefit from these Master Class features:
- Instruction by master authors
- Hands-on practice of new writing skills
- Immediate feedback
Drumroll Please …

About Master Classes
W2I Master Classes are one-day events with three workshops focused on writing fiction for children and young adults. Of course, those who write adult fiction are welcome, too. So, invite all the writers you know!
You may be thinking …
Master classes? I’m not a master. I’m not ready for a master class!
Oh, yes, you are!
We’re not offering master classes to writers who are already masters. These are focused, in-person classes taught by master authors and teachers designed to help writers who want to become masters at writing for children and young adults.
We’ve included lots of hands-on time for practicing your new and improved skills, complete with immediate feedback.
Our focus for W2I Master Classes is honing your writing skills. No marketing. No social media. No agents or editors. And only $99 for the full day.
Our plans include the possibility of more master classes focused on other types of writing …
- Children’s periodicals
- Devotionals and Sunday school curriculum
- Picture books, board books, and early chapter books
- Middle grader and young adult books
