Membership Information

You are cordially invited to check out the national organization of American Christian Fiction Writers at  It is the premier organization for Christian writers, editors, publishers, agents with over 29 chapters nationwide and 3,000 members. One does have to become a member of national ACFW to join a local chapter and you can join online at the site above.

If you live in South Carolina or nearby, we also warmly invite you to visit or join our local SC chapter. Once you join national, you can print out the below form and bring to a meeting and hand to me, Elva Cobb Martin, President. Here I am at the Carolina Christian Writers Conference in Spartanburg--with a flower behind my ear.  Our chapter meets the fourth Saturday of each month (except December and July) from 2:00 - 5:00 PM at North Anderson Baptist Church, 2308 N. Main Street, Anderson, SC 29621. Our meetings consist of a speaker leading a free writing class, a manuscript critique session and great networking opportunities. We also offer annual writing contests which are open to members and non-members.
