The COMPEL Community sets our writing training site apart from the rest. We offer an extensive community of like-minded writers who get each other and the passion to write. We offer a variety of online community groups to get involved with and foster a place for writers to build relationships.
The main mission of COMPEL is to inspire and equip writers to get their God-given messages out to the world. In doing so, we strive to help members grow in their spiritual life as well as their life as a writer.

One year ago I was waiting to sign a book contract. Thanks to COMPEL I have walked the road of traditional publishing. If you are thinking of writing a book, COMPEL Training might be just the thing you are looking for to help you reach your goal!
In 2016, I attended She Speaks for the first time and became a COMPEL member in July 2016. I have since told other friends about this incredible resource, been published by The Upper Room, self-published 31 Days to Hope Reinvented, and have just finished writing Shame Off You for Abingdon Press. None of this would have happened had you not been there. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your kingdom mindset and heart to cultivate our stories for God's glory.
Grateful for the selfless guidance, accountable sharpening, and heartfelt encouragement the COMPEL community exudes. You all keep me from quitting! I completed my first 365-day devotional series this year! Praise God!
COMPEL is teaching me to organize my thoughts and write in ways that impact and move people. I am grateful for godly instructors who listened to God’s call to teach others to write effectively & guide them to find their own voice.
Feeling thankful as I get to learn the craft of writing as well as gain a sense of “personal permission” to put my own insecurity to the side and go for it regardless of how “unqualified” I may feel. Thank you!
COMPEL has helped me stay encouraged as I am learning new skills and mindsets. God’s doing a new thing in and through me!
I’m grateful for COMPEL Training because I can learn from home in the midst of my role as a mother. Thank you COMPEL!
