Charles de Andrade and the Scribblers Christian Writers’ Club

Once upon a time a group of writers formed a club…

And they called it the Scribblers Christian Writers’ Club.

Serving in equal measures encourager and spark plug, Charles de Andrade has helped organize several Scribblers’ chapters, all of which meet once a month.

Beyond providing encouragement to authors, Scribblers’ members share costs for marketing expenses like exhibit booths, graphic designers, web designers, etc. Scribblers’ meetings are also frequently visited by industry experts who share their knowledge of publishing and printing.

In this interview, Charles talks about his writing career, how and why he formed Scribblers, and the joy and driving force of stewardship in his life.

  1. Charles is a great writer and the perfect leader for our Scribblers Christian Writers group. He genuinely wants to help us fellow writers to find more and better options to publish and promote our books in more economic ways. We members also share our work and support each other because of Charles’s guidance. As a writer, I have learned much helpful information already. I plan to publish my future books on his newly created Scribblers Publishing Company and sell my books on the new bookstore. I am thrilled to be a part of this group and delighted Charles is so dedicated to our group. If you live in the Atlanta, Georgia, area and are a writer or a “want-to-be” writers, check out our website mentioned above and think seriously about joining. You will not regret it.
