Writing for Your Life
If you write, or read, books that matter – books with substance and soul – then this is the place for you. We are here to help you gain inspiration and knowledge to empower your writing. We have a TON of free resources here and if you would like to subscribe to our weekly email newsletter with additional free resources you can do so here. Writing for Your Life is particularly useful for early-stage writers, including those who are not even sure if they consider themselves writers.
Writing for Your Life is committed to offering a wide variety of useful resources and services to support spiritual writers. We offer in-person writing conferences and online videos 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. We also provide a host of services and resources to support your spiritual writing. 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!
Publishing in Color
Publishing in Color has only one objective: increase the number of books published by spiritual writers of color. This includes groups such as African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinx Americans, and Native Americans, who have been under-represented in terms of the number of published books. We seek to achieve this objective in two ways: (1) Publishing in Color conferences, and (2) a TON of free resources for spiritual writers at Writing for Your Life.
The goals of these conferences are to:
- Foster relationships between spiritual writers of color and representatives of spiritual book publishing companies, literary agents, and spiritual magazines
- Provide networking and educational opportunities so that prospective writers can learn more about how to work with these publishing companies, agents and magazines
- Result in an increased number of books and articles published by writers of color
Many book deals, literary agent relationships, devotionals, book contributions, magazine essays, and more have resulted from Publishing in Color conferences.
The Publishing in Color conference series is part of Writing for Your Life, a resource center for all spiritual writers.
What, you might ask, is Compassionate Christianity?
Christian: We do not promote a creed or tell you what to believe. Whether or not you identify as a Christian is up to you.
Compassionate: We seek to feature inclusive, welcoming, and affirming voices and resources that reflect the compassion Jesus modeled for us. We encourage you to belong here. We welcome you to interact with us and with each other on our Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Twitter, and YouTube.
Our objective is to provide you with compassionate Christian thought leadership, nourishment, resources, and community. We seek to provide inclusive, welcoming, and affirming ideas and resources, reflecting the compassion Jesus modeled for us. It is not our objective to make money. Our website and weekly email are completely free, without ads and without a subscription required. We do not solicit donations.
How to Heal Our Divides
If we didn’t recognize them already, 2020 put a spotlight on several serious, deep divides that have had strong negative impacts on our society – racial, political, religious, and other divides. Much has been written describing these divides and how they came about, or encouraging us to look deeply inside ourselves to discover our own flaws. All good things! But there has been a lack of attention regarding what to do about it. “How to Heal Our Divides” is a project aimed at building awareness of organizations that are taking real action to address these issues. The project is not an attempt to gloss over serious problems or “make happy” but instead to highlight tangible efforts that are solving problems – actually healing divides in effective and practical ways.
Our new book “How to Heal Our Divides: A Practical Guide” is now available on the Writing for Your Life bookstore on Bookshop, and on Amazon and IndieBound! And check out the free Discussion Guide that accompanies the book – download it for free here.
