August 2017 Meeting




OCFW Welcomes Erin Taylor Young



            OKC Christian Fiction Writers will host Erin Taylor Young on Saturday, August 19th, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Mrs. Young will speak on Overcoming Damaging Self-talk for Writers. She will discuss God’s creative power is in words, especially in those we say to ourselves. Words can breathe truth into our hearts and spirit, or lies. Come learn how to harness negative self-talk and turn those words into a vehicle of encouragement and empowerment.


Erin Taylor Young is the co-managing editor for Serenade Books, a publishing company she helped to found. Her deepest passions are the Word of God and bringing His truth, whether in her own books or the books of other authors, to readers. She teaches workshops about writing and publishing, produces podcasts, and is the co-creator of Write from the Deep and Live from the Deep with Karen Ball. She’s also an award-winning humor writer. Her books, Surviving Henry: Adventures in Loving a Canine Catastrophe and Still Surviving Henry: The Untold Stories, have been repeatedly accused of making readers laugh until they cry. Learn more about Erin at erintayloryoung.com where she blogs about writing, God, and her aversion to spiders.

June 2017 Meeting



OCFW Welcomes Shel Harrington






OKC Christian Fiction Writers will host Shel Harrington on Saturday, June 17th, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Mrs. Harrington will speak on Growing Your Facebook Page—How to Get Them to LIKE You!. This class explores more than two dozen specific strategies to build your Facebook following and keep it growing; You'll also learn the most common mistakes made on author pages and how to avoid them.
Shel Harrington knew if she wanted to take her inspirational humor blog, Fat-Bottom-Fifties Get Fierce, to brand recognition, she needed to create a Facebook page that would help get the word out. Diving right into the Facebook world, she quickly learned that just because you make it, doesn’t mean they will LIKE it! So she set out on a quest to solve the “What will make them LIKE it?” riddle. 

Solve it she did – growing her Facebook page to over 200,000 “likes” and “follows” with a weekly page reach consistently in the millions -- and it’s still growing! In her alternative world, Shel is a Family Law Attorney and adjunct law professor in Oklahoma City. In addition to her published law-related book and articles, she blogs with humor about improving relationships at www.shelharrington.com
