There are opportunities for people who want or need to actually work on the craft of their writing in community with others, and I've come to know about a small bevy of them as a result of my expanding network among Christian writers.
So, I thought I'd pass along some of the notifications I've received about the lesser-known opportunities to gather in more intimate settings than big writer's conferences. Below I've started a list of links to lesser-known opportunities for intensive craft development in smaller, groups of writers, editors, and publishers, often in someone's home, converted barn, or even private island (oh yes). I'm limiting this list to opportunities offered by Christian writers, editors, and publishers. I welcome additions to the list!
