"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession,
that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." -1 Peter 2:9
Kingdom Writers Association (KWA) exists to provide authors and "pre-authors" the opportunity to gather together, to be encouraged, equipped, and empowered to produce high-quality material that honors God and reaches the masses for generations to come.
Writers write in isolation but need community. KWA provides that community in our monthly gatherings (in-person and online), where writers of all levels meet together, grow in their craft, and build relationships with fellow writers.
Conferences & Workshops
We have a passion to equip Kingdom scribes to achieve their calling and produce works that honor God and make an impact. To that end, we provide various workshops and creativity conferences to inspire, educate, and empower. Members can take advantage of discounted registration fees.
At KWA, we don't retreat, we advance! Each year we provide advances to local regions, such as Idyllwild and international locations, such as Oxford, England. These advances provide opportunity to delve deeper into our craft and explore the more that God has for us as creatives. Advances are first come,first serve and members get first notice and priority.
Members can access our "Members Only" Facebook group page, where they can communicate with one another, tune in to special video blogs by KWA Leaders, and attend/review monthly gatherings via Facebook Live.
Members-Only Online Chapters
Members can access all online chapters, including our Members-Only online chapter led by Directors Brae and Jill Wyckoff. This chapter meets on the third Saturday of each month from 9:00a to 11:00p (pst) via Zoom and Facebook Live on the KWA Members-Only Facebook group page.
Members are encouraged to join via Zoom so they can be seen and heard. This is a great opportunity to join in community with fellow writers from across the globe.
Members have access to KWA Leaders for private coaching at a special discounted rate.

God is amassing an army of Kingdom-minded writers all over the world. KWA has members across the globe who have joined this army. To support this effort, KWA continues to build local Chapters (communities) throughout the U.S. and beyond. We also have online chapters to reach worldwide members who do not have local chapters. These chapters are building community and empowering Christian writers to respond to the scribal calling of God on their lives.

"Writing can be isolating. The investment of time without knowing the payoff can stop you in your tracts. At KWA, I've found writers of all genres offering encouragement, sharing skills, and reminding me that everything written for God's purpose already matters."
