Hobnob with CBA Stars

Dear Christians Who Write:

You won't want to miss this opportunity to hobnob with some of the top writers in the Christian Booksellers Association. The Writers View 2 (TWV2) is a spin off from a list I've been on for several years, The Writers View. TWV2 is for beginning writers. Read this thoroughly, and I would encourage you to join. This is just one more way accomplished Christian writers seek to share their success with beginners.

Begin Press Release:

TheWritersView (TWV) has impacted writers for almost four years. I've loved serving as moderator, except for one thing. . .

Every week we turn down writers. These are people who may be talented or on their way, but who are in the beginning to intermediate stage of their careers and ministries. We've sent them to other groups, hoping that they might meet their needs.

But no more!

TWV2 will launch on May 1, 2006.

This is a sister list with the same great format. TWV2 is for beginning to intermediate writers who want to take their writing to the next level. Cec, Carmen, and Lynn will all move to the new list as panelists. We will be adding additional panelists over the next two weeks.

TWV1 has a format that is unique. It's not chatty. It's topic-driven and tightly moderated. Our goals are:

1. To take writers to the next level
2. To create a strong network and strong friendships in the industry
3. To encourage and foster the craft of writing
4. To promote a team (writers, agents, publicists, editors,
journalists) mentality

The goals for TWV2 are the same. The guidelines are the same. The potential to help writers is exciting.

It may be that some of our TWV1 members may want to move to TWV2. If you've been frustrated that we've not addressed some of the basics, then jump on over. The panelists will be discussing the foundational tools such as craft, queries, and much, much more.
