Faith and Writing Workshop set for July 20-22

Registration now open

Writers of all abilities can explore the art of creative writing in its various forms – starting a blog, creating a sermon or devotion, story, nonfiction, drama, poetry and everything in between – at the Faith and Writing Workshop set for July 20-22 at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.

This year’s workshop will include an emphasis on 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.

“When our workshop went online last year due to the pandemic, Peter and I were prompted to re-envision this creative writing workshop. We’re excited to bring all those new insights into this year’s in-person workshop.”

The cost of the workshop is $175 per person ($75 for Seminary students) with a maximum of 15 participants. Meals are not included. The registration deadline is July 6.
