Christian Writers United (CWU) will have their next meeting on Tuesday, July 7, 2009, at Coweta Community Church located on the 34 by-pass. The meeting will run from 7 – 9 p.m.
All Christian writers are invited regardless of genre choice. According to co-founder Swanee Ballman, “We recently had an author attend CWU who has written two Christian westerns. This is a genre which is not often seen in the Christian community. Everyone is excited about it.”
“Additionally,” states co-founder Linda Jennings, “our members and attendees don’t just write books and scripts, they also write magazine articles. Several have begun entering writing contests, and they are having a ball doing it.”
Connie Singleton recently placed second in the Newnan-Coweta Magazine’s 2009 writer’s competition. Her article, “Magic” was published on the magazine’s website.
Edwina Cowgill has made the first cut in the “Winning Writers Tom Howard Short Story Contest.” She has also been published in several magazines using different genres.
“The main goal of CWU is to encourage those who already write and those who desire to write – to write,” states Jennings. “Considering everybody’s hectic daily schedules, writers need continual encouragement to write. We also need help in the areas of publishing and marketing and CWU members can provide assistance in both areas.”
Presently, CWU members are working on a book of short stories written by CWU members. It will be published in the late fall.
