We writers need to gather, don’t we? It’s important to surround ourselves with other creatives who can inspire, connect us to others, and e ven teach us to be better at our craft and divine gift. I recently attended a local “Writers on the Rock” meeting and wanted to share this amazing opportunity with fellow scribes.
David Rupert heads up the ever-expanding groups that comprise Writers on the Rock in Denver. I asked him for information to share with our readers, and I share it here – in his words.
Writers on the Rock is a city-wide effort to gather, motivate and encourage writers. Whether you have one story to tell or have a lifetime of writing, this is the place for authentic expression of God’s gift.
Our mission is simple: To change the world with our words.
Right now we have about 150 writers involved, but we are looking to quickly expand that. Right now we meet in Lakewood, but we just started a group in Highlands Ranch, and, in March we will have groups in Aurora, Northglenn and Colorado Springs.
The group is less about the function of the art of writing and more about the heart of the writer. Christian writers aren’t always understood by family, friends or the church. So we need each other, this community of fellow scribes to help us give expression to God’s gift.
We have a variety of speakers and topics but always with an emphasis on our role as salt and light in this world.
Our yearly conference will be held Feb. 27 and will have more than 300 writers attending at least 20 breakouts, with something for everyone. The cost will start at just $49 for early bird registration and will include lunch, access to writers, engaging workshops and motivational keynotes. Readers of Christian Life News will get a 10 percent discount by using the code word ChristianLife when registering at www.WritersOnTheRock.com.”
