Capital Christian Writers began in 1999, and is a professional organization of writers who are Christian, though not necessarily writers of Christian literature, and not affiliated with any particular church or denomination. CCW serves writers at all levels, from beginners to professionals, in the DC Metro area of Northern Virginia, Maryland & DC. Bi-monthly meetings with speakers are held from 7 to 9 p.m. at Gunnell House/Truro Church, in Fairfax, VA, on the second Monday of odd-numbered months: September, November, January, March, May and July.
The Capital Christian professional and non-professional Writers meet in Northern Virginia for seminars and encouragement. Members hail from a wide band of the tri-state area, including Shenandoah Valley, Richmond, and Baltimore.
Previous speakers include: Dr. Harry Kraus, surgeon/suspense author; Melanie Rigney, editor with Writer’s Digest magazine, Os Guinness, author; David Aikman, journalist and author; Dick Schneider, senior staff editor of Guideposts magazine; Roger Palms, former editor of Decision magazine; David Yount, syndicated columnist, and literary agent Tamela Hancock Murray.
Our Number One Goal: Every Member Published! We want you to earn those clips and win those awards! Along the way, we want to get to know you, and encourage you. Writing is a solitary pursuit without the fellowship of other Christians.
