What we're about

Word Weavers West Michigan is growing. Beginning in 2009 as the West Michigan Fellowship of Christian Writers, our group continues to grow as we encourage and equip writers in a faith-based environment.

In 2010, we joined Word Weavers International. By 2013, we were sponsoring four regional critique groups in the West Michigan area. We have plans to expend into the Detroit Metro area as well as to Northern Michigan in the coming months. Look for further information, as we draw closer toward opening groups in Royal Oak and Cadillac.

Our groups meet twice each month. Our vision is to provide encouragement, accountability, education, inspiration, and support for current and aspiring writers who thrive best in a faith-based environment. As talented writers are raised up and equipped, we strive to influence others toward Christ, one word at a time.

Annual Word Weavers membership is currently set at $45.00 per year and can be paid at http://www.Word-Weavers.com . But don't let the idea of dues hinder you from visiting a small-group or a chapter meeting. No one is expected to pay dues in order to walk through the door. After your initial visit, ask yourself these questions:

1) Is the group providing valuable support and fellowship for your writing efforts? 2) Do you feel yourself becoming a part of the group? In other words, do you see this group as "your" writer's group? 3) Do you want to invest in your writing successes by sharing in the critique time?

When you are comfortable answering "Yes" to these questions, visit our international website at http://www.Word-Weavers.com to officially join. Members can then participate in the meetings' critique sessions, join the private Facebook page, receive our monthly Loom newsletter, and partake in the other great benefits Word Weavers offers.

I speak for most of our members when I say I've grown the most as a writer from the constructive advice I have received during these regular critique sessions. Do you have a message, a book, or an idea buried in your heart? Join Us!!

GR South Word Weavers Meeting

Kent District Library - Kentwood (Richard L. Root) Branch

Because this meeting has not grown as we'd hoped and I need to focus my attention and energy in a different area for now, I am stepping down as your meeting leader. This means the members have to make some important decisions. 1. Do they want to continue meeting? If so, someone will have to be responsible to make sure the First Floor Conference Room where we've been meeting is reserved. All he or she will have to do in the meeting is keep things moving making sure that Word Weaver guidelines are followed. Whoever does assume the position of leader will have their annual Word Weaver membership dues waived and will be asked to make the leader's meetings which occurs once a quarter. 2. If they want to continue meeting, do they want to try and find another place or a different day to meet? Do they want to split responsibilities so one person arranges meeting space and another leads meetings? 3. If the group decides they do not want to continue meeting, there are other Word Weaver meetings they can attend. That information can be found on this Word Weavers Meetup Site There also is an online group which may be of interest. If anyone is interested in that option, send me an email ([masked]). Our next and final meeting with me as leader will be January 22nd at the regular time and place. At that time members can talk over their thoughts and possibly make decisions about how to go forward. I wish to thank those who have been supporting and attending this meeting.
