Resources for Spiritual Writers

Writing For Your Life



Are you passionate about spiritual writing? We are here to help you gain inspiration and knowledge to empower your writing.

Writing for Your Life is committed to offering many useful resources and services to support spiritual writers. We offer in-person writing conferences and online writing conferences (aka webinars) featuring leading spiritual writers and publishing industry experts. Authors discuss and teach about various aspects of spiritual writing. Industry experts offer advice on how to get published and how to market.  

Our next in-person writing conferences will take place in May 2017 in Holland MI and in July 2017 in Nashville TN. Registration is now open for all three. Sign up here for information about additional online and in-person conferences throughout 2017.

In addition we offer several types of writer support services, online video training presentations, and other resources. We cannot guarantee that you will become a best-selling author, but we will help you take your best shot.

Learn to tell your own story; write for your life!
