A Peek into Our Past

Christian writers have a unique platform to share our faith with the world — through literature. With this in mind, the Write2Ignite Conference for Christian Writers of Children’s and Young Adult Literature began in 2008 — with a few children’s writers who felt compelled to create stories for younger readers – stories with ideas and characters reflecting the truth recorded in God’s Word.

Write2Ignite team members developed an annual conference and other programming and resources in 2008. In 2011, Write2Ignite became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

In 2020 Write2Ignite shifted from in-person, traditional writers conferences to virtual, one-day Master Classes designed to target specific skills and genres. The results of this transition have been positive, giving more individuals the opportunity to attend and be a part of an encouraging network of writing professionals without the need to travel.

  1. Sounds like a great idea . . . a way for Christian writers to come together and help each other!

  2. I’m thrilled to have found this site! I’ve written 3 fantasy novels for middle-grade readers (under the pen name M. C. Spencer) and am just about to publish my first children’s picture book, Merrigold’s Very Best Home. I’m running a fund-raising campaign at the moment on Indiegogo, to help pay for the illustrations. You can have a look at it here if you like –
