Meet Other Local Writers


We are fiction writers, nonfiction writers, aspiring, beginners and advanced. Together we support each other toward our writing goals.

One of the main goals of Capital Christian Writers Fellowship (CCWF) is to support and assist the development of beginner writers as well as offer continuing writer education. CCWF does that through its website, webinars, online and in-person quarterly meetings (Centreville, Va.), and summits and conferences.
