Plotting is more than convoluted outlines.

Learn how to unlock the imagination God gave you.

Virtual Summit Dates: April 22-24


Registration Opens: March 2nd


Time to Reset Your Approach to Plotting

Too many writers make these mistakes:

They struggle to finish a novel because they don’t know where to take their ideas.

They settle for shiny gimmicks instead of developing truly original concepts.

They waste time crafting elaborate outlines that don’t actually help their stories.

When writers learn to use their imaginations the same way that God exercised His creativity, we believe they’ll finally thrill readers with gripping storytelling.

That’s why we’re gathering 10+ expert Christian authors, editors, and coaches to teach you how to nail your novel’s plot.

“We resolve to fearlessly embrace and wisely exercise imagination as a gift from God, trusting Him to use it, not by limiting our creativity but by benevolently directing it.”

– Christian Storytellers Manifesto

Not Your Standard Virtual Event

We get it. Virtual events have gotten old since last year.

That’s why we’re taking this to the next level.


Interactive Activities

Writing is about doing, not just listening. We’re building creative and peer critique exercises into this summit so you can practice what you learn.


Community Discussions

You need the opportunity to unpack the techniques taught in our sessions. Our focus on community will help you connect with others.

Focused Topic

Every session aims at one goal: equipping you to write engaging plots. We don’t want to fill your head with miscellaneous tips.

Meaningful Faith Connections

The Bible may not seem to say as much about plot as it does about characters and themes. But we’re going to show you how many principles you can glean from the model of Scripture.

Attendees’ Thoughts on Last Year’s Summit

“Whether taught by well-known professionals in the CBA or Story Embers’ young, enthusiastic, and talented staff, each session presented invaluable information that all writers can benefit from. Highly recommended!”
