Are your creative juices evaporating this summer?
Then prepare to be refreshed and re-energized at the next meeting of the Christian Authors Guild
Monday, August 5th, 2019, 7 PM (doors open at 6:30 pm) at Prayer and Praise Christian Fellowship, 6409 Bells Ferry Rd., Woodstock, Georgia.
Award-winning author Terri Gillespie will be our keynote speaker.
Terri’s topic is entitled
“The Creative Sacred Place”
“As Christian writers, we pull from a sacred place of creativity. In the business of publishing, we can sometimes lose our way and forget why we write. Terri’s message will encourage writers to visit that sacred place regularly by giving some helpful pointers of how to get there. Her talk will also include a fun writing exercise that will boost those creative juices.”
Terri’s books will also be available that evening to peruse and purchase. See her website at
Gather with other aspiring writers for an evening of encouragement, helpful tips, and fellowship. Bring a friend? Surely! Visitors are always welcome at CAG meetings. Refreshments will be on hand and there is never a charge to attend.
