Ottawa Christian Writers

Ottawa Christian Writers' Fellowship

A Chapter of the Word Guild


Building a community of Christian writers in our nation's capital

Our goal is to encourage one another as Christian writers. We intend to do this through prayer, monthly meetings and informal contact and relationship building. We aim to improve the quality and quantity of our writing, through information sharing, discussion and mutual accountability as we connect with one another. This may include formal or informal feedback, critiquing and editing arrangements.

The Ottawa Christian Writers' Fellowship is a chapter of The Word Guild. We encourage membership in The Word Guild or other writing groups as a means to self-improvement and networking among Christian writers. While membership is encouraged, it is not required.

We host the annual Ottawa Christian Writers’ Conference and a series of half-day workshops to help develop and encourage Christian writers in the capital region.



The annual conference was held this April. Here are some highlights from the event:
