I had never done an extensive search for Christian writing groups and resources before. I was surprised at how many I have never heard of. There are also many local writer’s groups which you can search for.
In addition to these, there are quite a number of excellent Christian bloggers online who write about… oddly enough, Christian writing! Plus a wealth of Christian writing conferences held around the world.
While I have been a part of Faithwriters for a number of years, I haven’t had any contact with many of the sites. So please use at your own discretion.
Please let me know if any of these links don’t work. They are the blue text in the description.
