Mark Your Calendar For LCW's Fall Kickoff This Saturday, September 20, 2014!!

A reminder that Lancaster Christian Writers will be kicking off its fall calendar Saturday, September 20, 2014, at Lancaster Alliance Church, 210 Pitney Rd (off Hwy 30 across from Costco) from 9:30AM-12 noon ((registration opens at 9). Popular conference speaker Emily Parke Chase will be welcoming LCW back with a challenge of value to every writer.

Emily Chase is not only a frequent speaker at conferences for youth and adults, she is author of seven books, including Help My Family's Messed Up! (Kregel) and her most recent release, Standing Tall After Falling Short (Moody). Emily describes her workshop: 

"When kids migrate back to school, the shift impacts everyone's routine. This is a great time for setting new writing goals for the year.  We can all think of things that need to be done, but how do you set reasonable, measurable goals, what steps do you need to take to achieve those goals, and how do you overcome obstacles to meeting those goals?  This session will help you avoid frustration and stress while moving forward toward your dreams!"

DEVOTIONAL SPEAKERS:  Our LCW openings is a wonderful opportunity for our members to share your own writing and a message God has laid on your heart with the larger group. We are looking for devotional speakers (5-10 minutes) for the 2014-2015 calendar year, including September. If you'd be interested in a calendar slot, please email

CRITIQUE GROUPS: There will also be opportunity for our usual peer critique groups after Emily Chase's workshop. As per guidelines, bring ten printed copies of no more than 1500 words.

See you Saturday!
