What makes for effective communication? How do we cultivate creativity in our lives? What role does faith play in the creative process? Those questions and more will be explored during the Faith and Writing Workshop July 30-Aug. 1 at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.
Participants will explore the various forms of creative writing including starting a blog, creating a sermon or devotion, story, nonfiction, drama and poetry. The workshop will emphasize social media and new forms of expression. There will be ample time for creative exercises. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring their own work, as well as favorite works by others.
The workshop will be led by Dr. Travis Scholl, managing editor of Concordia Journal, and Peter Mead, a Christian editor, publisher and writer.
“Whether you’re just starting out or already published, writing is something that can be taught, and in the workshop, we learn from each other,” Scholl said. “Words are at the heart and soul of faith, so we might as well learn how to use them well.”
The cost of the workshop is $175 per person with a maximum of 15 participants. On-campus housing is available. Meals are not included. The registration deadline is July 19.
