CANBERRA CHRISTIAN WRITERS' GROUP (CCWG)
Founded by Dianne Porter in July 2018 to help support Christian writers navigate the challenging pathway from the writer's desk to publication by utilizing the Annual Anthology as the living tool to complete this task. There is no cost to participate.
We Plan to PUBLISH.
Our annual group goal is to publish an anthology of our work for minimal cost and make it freely available as a downloadable PDF file on this site and via Trove on the National Library of Australia Data base. From 2021, hard copies of the Anthology will be for sale for $20,00 each. Donations to help defray printing costs and web site hosting are always welcome.
All content is donated with all copyrights retained by their creators. Work published is used with the authors permission and designed to promote their work. Copies can be created for personal use but not commercial use. Any commercial use requires the agreement of the copyright holder, This projects intent is to honor and encourage Christians who feel inspired to write.
Founded in 2018 to support members, it soon became clear the major challenge for writers of all genres was getting published. This is how getting published became the primary goal of the group. The secondary goal became providing a simple marketing platform for contributors as a way of compensation for their generosity. In December 2019 our first Anthology for the Canberra Christian Writers' Group was published in a print version and as a downloadable online PDF file. A copy of this file can be accessed from the home page of this web page where it can be read online or downloaded free of charge. Members and visitors can print copies to keep or give away on a non commercial basis.
