Faith and Writing Workshop to be offered online July 21-23

Registration now open

Registration is now open for Concordia Seminary, St. Louis’ annual Faith and Writing Workshop July 21-23, now being offered as an online event because of the coronavirus pandemic.

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 share their own work, as well as favorite works by others.

The workshop will be led by Dr. Travis Scholl, managing editor of the 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 workshop fee is $150 per person ($50 for Seminary students). The registration deadline is June 30, and the number of spaces are limited to 25. Interested participants can sign up.
