About LCW

Has God laid a message on your heart? Always wanted to write it down? A closet scribbler already? Then join us at Lancaster Christian Writers every 3rd Saturday morning of the month from 9:30 AM-12PM at Lancaster Alliance Church, 210 Pitney Rd., Lancaster, PA 17601. Doors open at 9 AM.

Lancaster Christian Writers is a local chapter of American Christian Writers, a non-denominational association of Christian writers designed to provide full service to writers and speakers through a variety of educational and inspirational avenues in a Spirit-filled environment. Lancaster Christian Writers welcomes writers of all churches and denominations and of all levels, from published authors to beginning free-lancers.

Our monthly meetings offer opportunity for manuscript critique, networking with other writers, as well as regular workshops and guest authors. We accept writers of all genres, both fiction and non-fiction. 

Additional Resources

Along with workshops and training sessions, Lancaster Christian Writers also networks writers to publishing opportunities, writers conferences, and other writer resources. We have within our chapter a number of experienced authors and editors who offer individualized professional manuscript review and editing at standard rates. American Christian Writers and Christian Writers Guild both offer on-line writing courses and manuscript review as well. We also offer a one-day writers conference in March with both fiction and non-fiction tracks.

Membership Fees

Lancaster Christian Writers invites visitors to participate as our guests for their first meeting. Membership fee is $10 annually. *Due to surplus from our last March one-day conference, ALL membership fees are currently suspended until further notice!!!!
