Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. Currently 2.8 million children/youth in more than 100 countries attend Awana each week.

How can a writer use his skills?
We are looking for a variety of writing. Currently we have a big need for strong marketing copy. This means taking facts and key phrases from the marketing department and fitting it into the pieces needed. In other words, taking a rough draft and making it shine.
We also freelance some curriculum writing.
Another step in the door is through the blog. I can assign blog topics at the conference. We don't pay for blog entries, though we will give you a byline and a brief bio. See our blog here -

How can a writer prepare for appointment with you?

Some samples of what you've done. Clearly written contact information (although I go back to Headquarters with recommendations, I am not always the one to hire the writers - the person opening your file needs to know how to get in contact with you.)

Knowledge of Awana isn't necessary, but some understanding is good. Check out our website at

Write to Publish will be held June 3 – 6
in the Chicago area.
