The authors and writers who contribute exercises to a NOVEL Writing are homeschool parents as well. Though we live in a variety of places, we have much in common: a passion for writing, a love of teaching, and a commitment to write God’s truths into our fiction. In addition, we are all members of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), an organization dedicated to the promotion of quality Christian fiction.

By pooling our skills, ideas, experience, and perspectives we hope to provide homeschooling parents with a valuable resource to encourage their students and help prepare a new generation to hone their gift and proclaim God’s message in fresh ways.

Psalm 45:1—My heart overflows with a noble theme;

I address my verses to the King;

My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
