Has God put a book on your heart but you don't know where to start? Maybe you just love writing and want to explore the avenues for God to use your writing to minister to others or to help you leave a legacy for those you love. Newim’s Writers’ Group provides inspiration and resources for Christian women who want to write.
Help and Encouragement for Writers
Regardless of your stage or goals in the writing process, NEWIM is here to help!
Longtime authors and NEWIM members Kathy Collard Miller and Cindi McMenamin are teaming up to provide resources, encouragement and some next steps for writers affiliated with NEWIM. They will be offering encouragement, instruction and one-on-one coaching at a "Writers' Getaway" scheduled on Tuesday, Nov, 5, 2019, just prior to The Springs retreat this Fall in Three Rivers, CA.
Kathy and Cindi look forward to interacting with you on NEWIM’s Facebook Page for Writers.
A Writer's Resource
Kathy has made "Writing as a Ministry for God's Glory" available as a free downloadable resource. You’ll find in the eight chapters information about writing articles, personal experiences, devotionals, Christian Living books, and fiction. You also learn about basic editing, marketing, and balancing non-writing duties. Kathy is the author of over 50 books and will walk you through this information in a practical and understandable way.
