What we're about

We are currently meeting monthly with over 60 people in attendance and growing. We have a facebook group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1063082980415775/

Vision: Kingdom Writers Association is to be a resource center for Christian writers of all levels to empower, encourage, and unlock scribes into their calling and to publish award-winning material within all genres with the purpose of reaching more people for Christ.

Kingdom Writers Association (KWA) is a resource center and community for Christian writers of all levels. Though launched in San Diego California in 2016, KWA's members span the globe gathering in local Chapters and online via social media. In our KWA community, we work to equip, encourage, and empower writers and to remove the roadblocks that hinder individuals from walking in the fullness of their creative calling. We envision Christian authors flooding the mainstream market with works that honor God, impact culture, and bring generational blessing.
