Welcome to ACFW-Great Lakes!

We are a community of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) members who live in Michigan. Whether we connect virtually or in-person, we want to glorify Jesus as we connect, encourage, and hone our craft.

Encouragement & Celebration

As you know, writing is an incredible joy, but it can also be full of rejection. Let’s persevere together! Share your news by clicking the mail button above! We will post it here as well as email the chapter.

Writing Groups – coming soon!

Writing is mostly solitary, but we desperately need the connection of others. We were created for relationship with each other and our Creator. Our craft is better for it! Look for news about local in-person monthly writing groups!
