Celebrate Spring by Joining LCW in Welcoming Author/Speaker Emily Chase Saturday, 03/19/26

Wow, can you believe this weather! Come celebrate spring with Lancaster Christian Writers Saturday, March 19, 2016, at Lancaster Alliance Church, 210 Pitney Rd (off Hwy 30 across from Costco) from 9:30AM-12 noon (registration opens at 9). Join us in welcoming prolific author and speaker Emily Parke Chase.

SPEAKER: Originally trained as an archaeologist, Emily Parke Chase no longer glues old pottery shards together, but helps repair people's broken lives instead. Her seven non-fiction books include Help! My Family's Messed Up! (Kregel), and Standing Tall After Falling Short (Moody). Her true stories have appeared in twenty different Chicken Soup for the Soul volumes.

WORKSHOP: "Soup's On! A Recipe for Writing for Collections and Anthologies". Collections of stories such as Chicken Soup for the Soul, along with anthologies or devotionals, offer some of the best opportunities for new writers to break into the publishing world, but each editor has specific features they seek in the stories they choose to include.  Emily will share practical tips on how to meet those criteria, tips that will make your writing fit the bill. 

SUPER SATURDAY 2016: We are just one month out now from our Super Saturday 2016 at Lancaster Bible College Saturday, April 16, 2016. Time to be getting those registrations in! And please help us spread the word by sharing event data on your own social media/church and library bulletin boards, etc. Flyer and Press Release for 2016 are now live. For printable links, see SS2016 data above,. For those wanting to pay by credit card or PayPal, we have that option available this year by requesting secured invoice through PayPal from LCW president at

CRITIQUE GROUPS: And don't forget to bring your latest work-in-progress for critique groups (ten copies up to 1500 words).
