Jerry B. Jenkins, owner of the Christian Writers Guild headquartered in Colorado Springs, has announced the acquisition of Word Weavers, a Florida-based organization of local writing critique groups with chapters in three states.
“The leadership of Word Weavers has developed a great model for local chapters,” Jenkins says, “and they’ve agreed to stay on to help us create a nationwide network of such groups.”
The Christian Writers Guild trains writers through email courses, contests, conferences, and critiques. “Plugging our members and students in to peer groups has been an ingredient we’ve long dreamed of adding to the mix,” Jenkins says. “The acquisition of Word Weavers gives us a ready-made platform to do just that.”
Larry Leech, president of Word Weavers, says, “Vice-presidents Eva Marie Everson and Cheri Cowell and I are excited about joining the Christian Writers Guild team. Like the Guild, Word Weavers is dedicated to developing writers. Becoming part of CWG significantly expands opportunities and benefits for current and future Word Weavers members. We’re grateful for the opportunity to help the Guild coach and encourage aspiring writers.”
