Vine & Vessels Christian Writer's Ministry

Joyce Sessoms and Betty Ricks Jarman were two of the original members of Delmarva Christian Writer's Ministry, and they have branched out to co-found their own writer's group. Visit their website to learn more. In 2018 they hosted their 10th annual Vine & Vessels Conference at Crossroad Community Church, Georgetown, DE. 


"And God is able to cause all grace to abound toward you,

that ye having all sufficiency, may abound unto every work.”

2 Corinthians 9:8

New Writers WELCOME!

We're a friendly group, don't be shy. If you're interested in becoming a member of DCWF, there are no application forms to fill out or dues to pay. Just show up at one of our meetings where we'll capture your name and contact information. We have a lot of resources and encouragement to offer, and new members always bring a lot to the group.


Established in 1993, DCWF meets the third Saturday of the month at Georgetown Presbyterian Church, Tunnell Hall, 203 North Bedford Street, Georgetown, DE 19947, from 9 AM to Noon. Meeting attendance runs from eight to 28. Many are beginning writers who are mentored by those who have been published. It is an informal gathering for critiquing and encouragement with resources to build up the Christian who writes. We follow a meeting agenda, but there is no membership fee or pressure; however, we do hold one another accountable to see progress in our writing. Meetings typically include a devotional, shared information, a teaching, manuscript critiques, and prayer. Friendships are fostered over lunch and between meetings. On occasion, we host day-long writing seminars or retreats and encourage participation in regional/national conferences. Follow us on Facebook.


QUESTIONS? Give Candy Abbott, the director, a call at 302.856.6649, email, or use the CONTACT US page to send a message. We'll do our best to get back to you as fast as possible.
