Spirit-Led Writer

PAY: $10 - $20
A resource for Christians who write in fiction and non-fiction genres for Christian and secular markets. It is for the beginner, intermediate and advanced writer. As an alternative to secular writing resources, we choose to uplift the name of Jesus Christ, and give Him glory. Thus, we promote Spirit-led excellence and integrity in publishing. At Spirit-Led Writer we recognize that our achievements come "not by might, nor by power, but by the Spirit of the Lord" and that "all things work together for our good." Most sections of Spirit-Led Writer are open to submissions from non-Christian writers, however, the advice given must not conflict with Biblical principles.
