KCWC workshop leaders are successful agents, editors, and authors. They have been carefully chosen as instructors based on their commitment to Christ and their desire to share valuable wisdom and insight with other Christian writers. This page will continue to be updated as new faculty is added. Visit again soon!


A literary agent represents writers and their written works to publishers and assists in sales, promotion, and deal negotiation.


An editor works for a media outlet and facilitates the publishing process, sometimes including proofreading, copy-editing, and critiques.


A Christian author is a person who writes to glorify God. KCWC faculty members are recognized industry professionals.
