Membership and Dues
Why join ACFW and HIS Writers (ACFW North Denver Chapter)?
- National Support -- We are part of a larger national organization called American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW).
- Networking -- As part of a national organization, we are able to offer you opportunities to meet fellow writers. Also, our monthly meetings give you the chance to meet fellow writers in the area.
- Education -- ACFW offers a national conference each year, and also offers online writing courses. HIS Writers hosts published professionals at regular monthly meetings, giving you access to a variety of opportunities to learn from the best, plus hosts a professional one-day writing seminar in November.
- Mentoring -- Through ACFW you can join an online critique group. HIS Writers also has two local critique groups in place.
- Personal touch -- You can subscribe to a myriad of e-mail loops such as a general discussion forum, prayer group, and mentoring groups through ACFW. Fellowship is a priority where the opportunity to develop friendships abounds.
- Spiritual -- While there is no requirement that every member of ACFW and HIS Writers adhere to the same doctrine, we do believe in one supreme God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, as a trinity. Spending time with other writers who believe the same way you do can provide immeasurable support for your faith life and your writing life.
Who May Join?

What if I'm not yet published?
Many of our members as unpublished, they are working TOWARD publication. Here you will find training in fiction writing and information about the Christian fiction industry that will help you reach the Lord’s goals for your writing. Note that His goals may or may not include publication, but we will work with you, encourage you, and pray for you while you find out.
