Though this is not news exclusive to speculative fiction, it will affect some Christian writers—some who may visit Spec Faith. The Christian Writers Guild, purchased by Jerry Jenkins fourteen years ago, has come to an end. This organization provided teaching, mentoring, conferences, and most recently, self-publishing opportunities.
The news first came out in Publishers Weekly and was quickly picked up by the CBA publication Christian Retailing. Christianity Today posted the news as well, with remarks by Taylor University writing instructor Dennis Hensley.
From another source, I understand that Sally Stuart has re-acquired on a temporary basis The Christian Writers Market Guide which she established and recently sold to Jenkins’ group.
