Critique fee is $35.
Are you interested in taking your writing to the next level? A good way to determine if you are ready for publication is by submitting your manuscript for critique. Some shy away from having a manuscript evaluated, but if you are serious about improving your writing and achieving publication, a manuscript critique is an important step in the process. And it is a great way to learn from a professional what mistakes you are making in your writing. We look forward to helping you.

Welcome to the 1stannual writing contest of the CCWC!
It is our prayer that through this contest, we encourage authors to confirm their calling. There are two parts to the contest. The first part of the contest is limited to attendees whose entries are unpublished and uncontracted for the category entered. The second part of the contest is open to authors whose works have been published between January 2018 and March 2019.
The fee attached to each entry contributes to our Scholarship Fund, enabling talented but financially challenged writers to attend the conference. Thus, when you enter the contest, you are investing not only in your own professional growth, but also in God’s plan of provision for others.
Deadline for this year’s contest is February 1. 2019
Rules, guidelines, and fees are listed below. Please read and follow them carefully so as to ensure a valid entry.
Praying for you as you write for Him!
