Last week, I mentioned Katie Schuermann‘s neat sneak peek opportunity, and now I’ve learned about a fun Facebook event by Sarah Baughman. She is the Lutheran writer of Regency Silhouettes and the event is a digital tea break anticipating her next soon-to-be-released book!

Personalized Publicity

Every writer knows that publicity can be hard to come by. There are so many words floating around the cosmos and so few ears that chose to hear, let alone eyes to read! But check out what Lutheran novelist Katie Schuermann is doing for her next release: personalized publicity at its best!

CCLE Essay Contest

I like to think of this blog as a family-friendly place, so I’m happy to pass along writing contests for even our youngest, up-and-coming writers.

Want to work on your structure? Want to solidify your arguing lines of defense? Want to jot something down and feel a little free affirmation? Continue reading

National Poetry Month & Contest

And, for now, here’s a little writing exercise (for you grownups) and a writing contest for homeschooled kiddos ages 7-19.

That blog has been a Lutheran voice comforting the infertile and wrestling with difficult questions for five years now! And, who hasn’t been assigned to write an ode to your mother? (Actually that practice is newer than you likely realize, in part due to the romanticizing of motherhood when maternal mortality was so high in the 19th century or so.) Anyway, I also happen to know that if you’ve ever wondered about the new novelist publishing through CPH . . . Continue reading
