Theme: On Stories: Imagination to Incarnation
Join our workshops and lectures for the jump-start, dusting off, or home-stretch encouragement you’ve been needing to move forward with your writing.
We all know that writing well is, in part, a talent. But moving from God-given gift to a finished — and perhaps published — product requires self-discipline and dogged perseverance, as well the encouragement and feedback of others.
We’ll create an affirming atmosphere for reading and commenting on one another’s work, hear the often grim, full-of-failure background stories of now-respected writers, and discuss specifics for creating a writing life that is more than a rainy-day hobby. Writers of all expertise levels are welcome to come celebrate the creative life — and the privilege of working in community.
The Writers Workshop is part of the larger Southwest Regional Retreat.
