A community for writers (from any genre and skill-set) who seek after truth, honesty, and integrity in their works, to come together in a safe and supportive environment where they can discuss current projects and the writing process...among other things.


A NOTE from the Moderator:

I seek to tell honest stories that speak of truth in a world that has lost much of its conception of truth. I know there are others like me, whether or not believers in this Jesus, who write out of a need to create something real, tangible, unique, and universal. Something which honors the human spirit and the human struggle to be more and better souls.

All are welcome here, no matter what beliefs you hold, and I hope this will be a safe place to discuss what it means to write with truth, honesty, and integrity, as well as to aid in the progress of our stories as we seek after that sacred and much dreamt of station of 'professional' writer.

For now I leave you with this great quote:

"This above all-- ask yourself in the stillest hour of night: Must I write? Delve into yourself for a deep answer. And if this should be affirmative, if you may meet this earnest question with an honest and simple, "I must," then build your life according to this necessity; your life even in its most indifferent and slightest hour must be a sign of this urge and testimony to it." - Rilke

Come. Dream. Write.
