Faith and Writing Workshop

Faith and Writing Workshop 2017

Concordia Seminary will host a “Faith and Writing” workshop on campus July 25-27, 2017. This workshop explores various forms of creative writing — starting a blog, creating a sermon or devotion, “traditional” forms of creative writing (story, nonfiction, drama, poetry) — and everything in between. Attention will be given to social media and new forms of expression, with ample time provided for creative exercises.

The workshop will focus on what it means to create and communicate as a person of faith. What makes for effective communication? How do we cultivate creativity in our lives? What role does faith play in the creative process? Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring their own work, as well as favorite works by others.

The workshop will be led by Rev. Travis Scholl, managing editor of Concordia Journal, and Peter Mead, Christian editor, publisher and writer. It begins Tuesday, July 25, at 9 a.m. and ends Thursday, July 27, at 3 p.m. The cost is $175 per person with a maximum of 15 participants. All meals are on your own. On campus housing is available ($30 per person shared room; $45 per married couple or non-shared room). The registration deadline is July 17, 2017. Click here to register.
