Welcome to the San Diego Christian Writers Guild!

sdcwgWe are the largest countywide Christian writers group in the United States. Founded in 1977, the Guild has established a solid reputation for helping both new and experienced writers to become published authors. Guild members range in age from 9 to 94, span all skill levels, and cover the entire spectrum of writing genres including novels, magazine articles, plays, poetry, devotionals, songs, children’s books, and Vacation Bible School curricula. The SDCWG welcomes individuals who see writing as an avenue for serving our Creator. Although most members are Christians, there is no requirement for members to write only for Christian markets. Our community was founded by the Editor Emeritus of Decision Magazine, Dr. Sherwood Wirt. The San Diego Christian Writers Guild hosts annual conferences and an awards banquet. However, monthly critique group meetings are the heart of our Guild. Meetings are offered throughout San Diego County, reaching northward to the southern edge of Riverside County and into Arizona.

2014 Conference Dates: Oct. 24 & 25

Our fall writers conference is for all writers–beginners to professionals, and those who are wondering if this is what they are called to do. Our workshops offer instruction in how to get started, self-publishing, fiction, non fiction, marketing, book proposals, screen writing, script writing, journalism, as well as spiritual inspiration —and more. You can see a complete list subjects by going to the Faculty page here.
