The PEN Institute offers educational resources for Christian editors as well as for authors who are considering starting an editing business or just want to improve their writing skills. 

Editors’ Choice Award is an annual contest that honors the authors, editors, and publishers of well-written and well-edited books. 

PENCON is an annual virtual conference for Christian editors, although authors (especially those who are considering starting an editing business) are also welcome.

Christian Book Proposals

ChristianBookProposals.com (formerly ChristianManuscriptSubmissions.com or CMS) is the only book proposal service created by the top Christian publishers looking for unsolicited book proposals in a traditional royalty based relationship. It allows authors to submit their book proposal in a secure, online format for review by editors from publishing houses that are members of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA).

No need to finish your entire manuscript — just submit your well-written proposal!

** Publishers are looking for authors from ethnically under-represented backgrounds and can now use a special search in this database to find proposals from writers of color, Native writers, or writers from other ethnically under-represented backgrounds, when indicated in the author profile.


The Writers Edge

For over 20 years, the Writer’s Edge Service has been a method of effective communication between writers and major traditional Christian publishers for Christian manuscript submissions. Writer’s Edge, utilizing professional editors with many years of experience in working with major Christian publishers, evaluate, screen, and expose potential books to traditional Christian publishing companies.

Because most Traditional Christian Publishing Companies no longer accept unsolicited manuscripts and no longer sift through what used to be called the “slush” pile, new or relatively unknown writers have little chance to be seen by a traditional publisher unless they have a credible literary agent. Writer’s Edge Publishing Service, in full cooperation with over 75 traditional royalty-based Christian publishers, gives writers another option. The acquisition editors of these companies have agreed to view relevant manuscripts that “make the cut” at Writer’s Edge because they know they have been carefully screened and evaluated before being passed to them for consideration. Hundreds of authors have been successfully published because of Writer’s Edge Service.
