Writers need each other. Will you unite with them so you can thrive together?
Support the Writing Community Challenge | August 3-17
Writers Can’t Succeed Alone
You need encouragement, advice, and feedback from others to thrive in the publishing world.
But are you only taking from others…or are you also investing?
We want to equip writers to seek after the good of others, not just their own gain.
During pandemics and tumultuous years like 2020, needs in the writing community escalate faster than the words you type during NaNoWriMo.
But landing a publishing deal or selling a couple hundred books aren’t the only needs writers have.
Sometimes a note from a fan raving about their story is all an author needs to press on.
This 14-day challenge will help you take small, meaningful actions to build up fellow authors so that you can weather the difficulties of the writing life together.
How We’ll Help You Support the Writing Community
Specific Activity Assignments
Every day, we’ll give you prompts for simple activities you can do to meaningfully support the writing community.
Blog Posts & Article Series
We’re publishing a mini series on our site and partnering with other bloggers to inspire you to regularly contribute to the writing community.
Live Panel Discussion + Q&A
We’re hosting a live video discussion with authors Lindsay Franklin & Kara Swanson to field your questions on this subject.
Reverse Care Package Giveaway
We’ll be running a reverse giveaway. Instead of trying to win a prize for yourself, you can nominate a friend to win books & writing courses.
Why Take Time to Support the Writing Community?
Great writers are born from communities. That’s why J.R.R. Tolkien had the Inklings, Samuel Coleridge had the Lake School, and Agatha Christie had the Detection Club.
God didn’t intend for us to sit in our writing corners and focus only on achieving success for ourselves. The first step toward cultivating a more vibrant writing community begins with you.
Will you commit to joining our mission to encourage and build up one another as storytellers?
Registrants will receive emails for the challenge only and will not be subscribed to our main mailing list.
“We resolve to exhibit Christlikeness by nurturing authentic connections with readers that transcend their potential as customers, building a rapport with fellow authors, and responding to critics with patience and grace.”
