“We resolve to craft characters who remain true to how flawed human beings live and act, affirming that Christian storytellers have the freedom to portray the full human experience in all its beauty and depravity, not to glorify or endorse sin but to accurately reveal the brokenness of the world.”

– Christian Storytellers Manifesto

What’s Unique about the Authentic Characters Summit?


Focused Topic

Every session focuses on one goal: equipping you to write realistic characters. Together, the sessions build a comprehensive course on the subject.

Ease of Access

No travel necessary! All sessions will be online so you can stream them from the comfort of your living room.


Interactive Discussions

One of the best parts of physical conferences is meeting other writers. We’ll connect you with fellow attendees virtually for a similar experience.

Flexible Times

Attend sessions live for an optimal experience, but you can also watch any session later during the conference period.


We’re gathering some of the best experts to help you develop raw, complex characters.

We’re addressing specific problems Christian writers face when trying to create characters that feel real.

And we’re putting the speakers in front of you so you can enjoy listening from the comfort of home.

But that’s just the start.
