Faith and Writing Workshop – July 23-25, 2013

A workshop called “Faith and Writing” will take place on Concordia Seminary’s campus on July 23-25. This workshop explores and experiments with all kinds of creative writing — from starting a blog, to creating a sermon or devotion, to all the forms of “traditional” creative writing (story, nonfiction, drama, poetry)…to everything in between. Attention will be given to social media and new forms of expression, as well as ample time for workshops and creative exercises.

The primary focus will be 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, author and managing editor of Concordia Journal, and Peter Mead, Christian editor, publisher, and writer. It begins on Tuesday, July 23 at 9:00 a.m. and ends on Thursday, July 25 at 3:00 p.m. The cost is $150 per person with a maximum of 15 participants. All meals are on your own. On campus housing is available ($25 per person shared room; $40 per married couple or non-shared room). The registration deadline is July 9.

To register, call continuing education at 314-505-7286, email ce@csl.edu, or go to http://www.csl.edu/resources/continuinged/faith-and-writing-workshop-2013/.
